John James Revealed: As Trump Visits Michigan, MDP Announces New Billboard Campaign Holding John James Accountable For His Broken Promises

The Michigan Democratic Party launched a new billboard ad to hold failed politician and failed businessman John James accountable for breaking his promises to Michigan.

James has said in his own words he stands by the President “2,000%” and just like Trump, he broke his promise and lied to Michigan. Reports have exposed James took nearly $2 million in tax breaks while failing to create the 108 jobs he promised and instead cut 32 Michigan jobs. Then James lied about his alleged success as a Michigan job creator at a time when he had actually “failed to create a single job in Michigan.”

And he’s refused to answer why he lied to Michigan and when he’ll return the taxpayer money he took while cutting jobs.

“From standing with Trump ‘2,000%’ even as he fails Michigan, to taking a page out of the Trump playbook to rip off taxpayers – one thing is clear, Michiganders simply can’t trust John James to keep his promises,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn.


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.
