John E. James, businessman, combat pilot and candidate for the U.S. Senate, will speak Tuesday, April 17, to the Eastside Republican Club in Grosse Pointe Farms.
The Detroit businessman and 2004 graduate of the West Point military academy is campaigning for the GOP U.S. Senate nomination. Winner of the Aug. 7, 2018, primary will face incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow in the Nov. General Election.
In a statement in advance of the event, Dr. Annette DeSantis Feldpausch, club chairman, commented on James’ military background and business experience.
“With his record of creating jobs and defending our country, John James should have quite a story to tell,” she said.
“We expect him to explain why he is the best candidate to defeat Debbie Stabenow in the November U.S. Senate race.”
Feldpausch added, “The Forum is open to the public at no charge, so we invite everyone interested in public policy to attend and take part in the discussion after Mr. James’ remarks.”
James joined the family business, James Group International, after eight years active military service as a Ranger-qualified aviation officer, leading two Apache platoons in combat operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
