James outraises his opponent by more than $1 million
Livonia, Mich. –The John James for Senate campaign today announced raising over $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, out-raising his Democrat opponent by more than $1 million.
This is the fourth quarter in a row James has out-raised the Democrat incumbent. Over 60,000 donors gave in Q2 with an average gift of $31 and 95% of donations under $100.
Michigan’s U.S. Senate race is consistently ranked one of the most competitive in the nation.
“Michigan cannot wait any longer for battle-tested leadership and that is exactly what this grassroots momentum shows,” said Abby Walls, campaign spokesperson. “Michiganders have been fed talk for too long by failed incumbent Gary Peters who, most recently, voted against his own police reform bill on the floor of the US Senate to tow the partisan line. It’s disappointing, but unsurprising, behavior for a career partisan politician who votes with Chuck Schumer 95% of the time. Our state needs a leader who has the experience and courage to stand up for what is right and make a difference in the lives of Michiganders. John James will get real results for Michigan, and we are grateful for the support of hardworking families.”
James is a Detroit businessman and combat veteran. He served as captain of two Apache helicopter platoons during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After his military service, James joined the family business – an automotive logistics company – and helped the company grow and provide quality jobs in Detroit.
