KINGSFORD — U.S. Senate candidate John James was in Marquette and Iron Mountain Friday. James says he is encouraged by tightening poll numbers against incumbent U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow.
Campaigning across the state, James says he realizes there are differences but that issues are also the same.
“Looking at veterans issues across the state are similar. Looking at family issues across the state are similar. Looking at economic needs across the state and need for job creation and economic development are similar. We need to make sure we are addressing our similarities and our difference in a manner that will help bring us forward,” James said.
Supporters packed a tent outside of Lake Shore Systems to listen to James. He called the U.P. response incredible.
“People are really excited to have a candidate that they are proud to vote for. Too often we have to choose between the lesser of two evils. I think the reason out message is resonating is because it is not a black or white message, it’s a red, white and blue message,” James said.
James campaigned with Congressman Jack Bergman who is running for re-election.
