Cox Statement on John James Senate Announcement
LANSING, Mich., June 6, 2019 – The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding John James’ announcement that he will be running for the United States Senate in 2020 against incumbent Gary Peters.
“John James is a true patriot who has dedicated his life to the service of our nation. I welcome his entrance into the 2020 U.S. Senate race, and wish him well as he begins his campaign for the Republican nomination.” Cox continued, “I am confident that next year Michigan will send a leader to the U.S. Senate who will get something done for the people of our state. It’s time for a change from Gary Peters, who has been so ineffective that 43% of Michigan voters don’t even know his name.”
