Michigan GOP Senate Candidate John James Levels Failed Ocasio-Cortez Backed Candidate

Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James fired back at a failed far left candidate in Michigan on Wednesday who attacked him and Donald Trump Jr.

“Thrilled @DonaldJTrumpJr coming to stump for @JohnJamesMI,” Abdul El-Sayed, who was backed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wrote on Twitter. “Nothing describes @MIGOP better than a man who has done nothing of value but mooch off his daddy–who mooched off *his* daddy. No action, just words. Oh, & @KidRock, a confederate flag wrapped has been. G’luck John!”

James responded:

“Throughout his campaign, he has marketed himself as an antidote to same-old, same-old in Washington D.C., promising to bring a fresh perspective and a skill set buoyed by his combat experience in the Iraq War and his work at the business founded by his father, James Group International,” MLive reported.

Trump Jr., along with his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, is set to hold a rally for James on October 17 at 6 p.m. at the Flagstar Strand Theatre in Pontiac.

“I am running to protect the American Dream for future generations,” James said in a statement this week. “The people of Michigan don’t want free stuff, they want a fair shot and I will work with everyone to ensure economic opportunity and national security so that all the people of Michigan – no matter their zip code, have a fair shot at the American Dream.”
