Election Update: JOHN JAMESWednesday, August 15, 2018
JOHN JAMES – Michigan
Polling Average: Stabenow +18.0
This race hasn’t been polled for a month and now that combat veteran and businessman John James has won the Republican nomination and his name awareness is growing, the gap will close. Liberal Senator Debbie Stabenow is a 43-year career politician who is out of touch with the voters in Michigan. This week, she admitted to lacking even a basic comprehension of issues facing veterans in the state. James has an uphill climb, but he overcame long odds to win the primary and has the benefit of running in a state that President Trump won. Stabenow knows this, which is why she started buying TV ads just three days after James won the primary.
