Republican John James announced another campaign for Senate in Michigan Thursday, setting up a major clash with first-term Democratic Sen. Gary Peters.

James, a veteran and businessman, ran for Senate in 2018, losing by 7 percentage points to Sen. Debbie Stabenow. But Senate Republicans have eagerly recruited him to run again, believing his proven fundraising ability and a full campaign cycle to run would make him even more competitive this time around.

Republicans are mostly on defense next year as they seek to protect their 53-47 Senate majority, and putting Michigan in play would be a critical boost, giving them another offensive opportunity, along with Alabama, to cushion their control of the chamber.

I really like this guy.

In '18 I was planning on voting for Stabenaw (whom I also like) but this guy was just better.

I hope he wins his race in Michigan. I think he'd serve our state well.

Trump is -11 underwater in Michigan. It's gonna make it hard for the rest of the GOP ticket.

Mitch McConnell needs to be put out to pasture as Senate Majority leader. They've accomplished nothing but packing the courts and passing another GOP tax cut to blow up the debt even more than they already have.

Actually, this can only help Trump in Michigan (which I honestly don't want to happen) but I agree with Jeff, James is a good pick for Senator since Peters has turned out to be a seat warmer.

Contradict yourself much, slappy?
