Kirsters Baish| In recent news, rock star and conservative politician Kid Rock has announced that he will not be running for United States Senate in Michigan, but there is someone running who may take the cake. The conservative Republican is taking on Senator Debbie Stabenow, and we are confident that he will take the win. Former U.S. Army Apache pilot John James has decided to take on the challenge.
The Republican’s website, John James for Senate, reads:
John James is a husband, father, combat veteran and businessman. He is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-business conservative who has demonstrated energetic leadership, clarity of vision and a passion for service from the battlefield to the boardroom. John James is a proven servant-leader who will represent all Michiganders and help unify Washington.
At 17, John 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 earned a Combat Action Badge (CAB) and two Air Medals, among other awards, while logging 753.8 flight hours in theater leading two Apache platoons.
After eight years of service to the nation, John James was honorably discharged and 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. In addition to his Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, John has earned a Master of Supply Chain Management and Information Systems from Penn State University and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan. John is also a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
This guy has a perfect resume to become a member of Senate. The question that is on all of our minds now is if the GOP will support a candidate like James who is literally the total package. The former United States Captain represents everything that scares the progressive Left. He definitely doesn’t fit into their mold of the dependent society that they have been trying so desperately to form. This man has served our country, and he has made us proud. In fact, he is the very reason that in 2011 the Guardian Fund PAC was formed. It was created in order to support military and minority conservatives being elected to state offices.
There will be plenty of degrading and downright negative comments coming from the Left just because James doesn’t fall under the Liberal progressive definition of what a black man in America “should be.” He is a man who shows us everything that is truly great about our nation. This guy is just your average joe who enlisted in the Army and excelled quickly. He worked his butt off to graduate West Point and stayed focused as he became a decorated combat aviation officer. That isn’t all, however. James is also an accomplished private sector businessman.
The GOP-controlled Senate needs someone like James. He has true life experience that no one can deny him of having. As a senator, John James would represent not only the state of Michigan proudly, but all of America. Armed Services Committee and Finance Committee would be on his side, and if he were to make it to the United States Senate, you can bet he would do an excellent job. Tax reform legislation would benefit greatly from this man’s presence. He is someone who truly understands what our soldiers need to be as effective as possible against the global Islamic jihad.
It would be a beautiful thing for America to see former United States Army Combat Aviator John James become part of the United States Senate. He needs our support to get there, and I know when he does, he will do great things for this nation.
