John James Revealed: As Pence Comes to Michigan, Reminder That James Is “2,000%” For Trump Agenda That Has Left the Great Lakes State Behind

James has refused to break with Trump and Pence in their crusade to overturn health care law and protections for pre-existing conditions

As Mike Pence touches down in Michigan today, here’s a reminder that failed politician John James has stood “2,000%” with the Trump administration’s toxic agenda. 

Despite their empty promises, the Trump administration has failed Michigan by working to repeal the health care law which protects 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions, botching a pandemic response which has hurt our economy, and leaving our farmers behind with their erratic trade wars. 

But instead of being an independent voice for Michigan, James has stood in lockstep with Trump and Pence, and is “all for” their agenda. 

“This administration has hurt working families and left Michigan behind, but James says in his own words he’s ‘2,000%’ for Trump’s failed agenda,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James continues to make clear he’s running to serve Trump and Pence, not Michigan.” 

The Michigan Democratic Party launched to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
