John James Revealed: Out-Of-State Billionaires Go In Big to Support “Shady” Super PAC Propping Up John James

New campaign finance reports show that three out-of-state billionaires are pumping nearly a million dollars into a “shady, cozy” super PAC to prop up failed politician John James. 

The billionaires include hedge fund managers Paul Singer and Ken Griffin and former Home Depot CEO Bernard Marcus, who are just the latest GOP mega donors to bail out James’ campaign on the airwaves. 

The DeVos Family provided nearly a million dollars in seed money to launch the super PAC, which is run by James’ shadow campaign manager who’s come under fire for illegal coordination with the James campaign. 

“John James’ shadow super PAC’s latest contributions from GOP mega donors paint a clear picture of who James would be looking out for if elected – Betsy DeVos and out-of-state billionaires, not Michigan families,” 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.
