James wins Republican nod to face U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow

John James

Detroit-area businessman and Iraq War veteran John James won the Republican nomination Tuesday to run against Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow this fall.

James, a political newcomer endorsed by President Donald Trump, defeated Sandy Pensler in Tuesday’s primary.

With 96 percent of the state’s precincts reporting, James had 495,076 votes, or 55 percent, to Pensler’s 408,156, or 45 percent. In a statement, Pensler conceded and said he would support James in the general election.

James’ win was notable because in the days before the election, President Donald Trump not only endorsed James, who is an Army veteran who attended West Point and flew Apache helicopters in Iraq, but did a recorded robocall for voters on James’ behalf (he also did that on behalf of Republican gubernatorial candidate and state Attorney General Bill Schuette, who also won).
