Livonia, MI—Michigan agricultural icon Wayne Wood endorsed John James for US Senate in a video posted on social media, saying that John James is the best choice to represent farmers and the agriculture community as a whole.

“It’s an honor to support John James,” Wayne Wood said Monday. “He gets my support because of his willingness to listen and learn about agriculture and because of his values; faith and family, God and country, and putting service before himself.”

“It’s an honor to accept the endorsement of Wayne Wood, one of the most respected members of the Agriculture community,” James said following the endorsement. “Wayne has been a fierce advocate for Michigan farmers, and I promised him I would continue to listen and learn before I lead, which is exactly what we are doing by travelling the state and meeting with farmers.”

“John’s values are the same as those in the ag community. Whether they are producers, processors, or something else, they share John’s values,” Wood continued. “So I am asking folks to turn out to vote on August 7th for John James.”

“Momentum is clearly behind John James, who is gaining high profile endorsements that, along with his grassroots army, will fuel his victory in August and November to become Michigan’s next US Senator,” campaign manager Tori Sachs said. “While John continues to bring in endorsements from industry leaders and conservative champions, Liberal Sandy Pensler has no support and does not have the endorsement of a single conservative group.”

John James is a pro-business, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservative who, at 17, made the decision to serve his country. After graduating from West Point in 2004, he became a Ranger-qualified aviation officer. John went on to serve with distinction in Operation Iraqi Freedom where he logged over 750 combat flight hours while leading two Apache platoons.

After eight years of service to the nation, John James returned to Michigan to work in the family business: James Group International. Currently its President, James has led the company from $35 million to $137 million in revenue while creating 100 additional jobs in Michigan and around the country since 2012.

John James is the sole conservative in the 2018 Michigan U.S. Senate Race with the exclusive endorsement of Right to Life, Senate Conservatives Fund, American Conservative Union (hosts of CPAC), the Family Research Council and the Susan B. Anthony List. James also has the endorsement of the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce PAC and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. They join previous endorsements including ABC of Michigan, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, Congressman Paul Mitchell, Congressman Mike Bishop, Ambassador John Bolton, Sen. Marco Rubio, former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, Kid Rock and many others.
