John James, candidate for United States Senate, will be the keynote speaker at the Livingston County Republican Party’s annual fall Reagan Day Dinner on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018.
James, who lives in Farmington Hills, is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-business conservative who is challenging Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
On Aug. 7, 2018, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Congratulations to a future STAR of the Republican Party, future Senator John James. A big and bold victory tonight in the Great State of Michigan – the first of many. November can’t come fast enough!”
“Michigan needs a combat veteran and job creator in the US Senate,” said James after his August primary win. “I don’t have a Black message. I don’t have a White message. I have a Michigan message. I’m a West Point graduate and a combat veteran who knows how to keep America safe because I have done it before. I am a job-creator who knows how to create economic opportunity because I have done it before. Washington has enough career politicians. We need people who have experience getting results. You aren’t going to get results from a 43-year career politician. Debbie Stabenow better get ready for the fight of her political life.”
The dinner begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, at Crystal Gardens Banquet Center, 5768 E. Grand River Ave, Howell, MI 48843. Tickets are $60 per person. Those who purchase dinner tickets will have the opportunity to attend a candidate reception in the main dining hall before to the dinner starting at 5:30 p.m.
Confirmed candidates for the candidate reception include Mary Treder Lang, candidate for Secretary of State; U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, candidate for 8th Congressional District; state Rep. Lana Theis, candidate for 22nd state Senate; state Rep. Hank Vaupel, candidate for 47th state house seat; and Ann Bollin, Candidate for 42nd District state Representative.
