John James Sr. Has History Of Giving To Liberal Democrats

John James Sr.

John James is running for the Republican nomination for US Senate, hoping to win in August and face liberal Senator Debbie Stabenow in November.

James, a Veteran and West Point Grad, is new to GOP politics: he grew up in a Democrat household.

After his time in the service, James returned to the family business run by his father, John James Sr.

James Sr. is a Democrat from the Detroit area, and he has given thousands to liberal candidates over the years.

Records from the Michigan Secretary of State indicate James Sr. has given over $10,000 to Michigan Democrats since 2004.

James Sr. gave nearly $5,000 to former Governor Jennifer Granholm alone.

He has also given to former Michigan Democratic Party Chair Butch Hallowell, now a prominent attorney in Detroit.

The issue has confused some voters, provoking John James Jr. to mention in some of his advertising that he has different political opinions than his father.
