John James for Congress


  • “I fought on the battlefield for American lives and in business for good-paying jobs that fuel livelihoods. I will continue to fight for the hardworking families in Michigan’s 10th district.”
  • “I want to grow your economy, not Washington’s. I’m an open-minded, free thinking conservative, and I’m not afraid to listen even if you disagree with me.”
  • “Our community needs a congressman who is grounded in real life. A leader who will defend our Freedom, ensure good-paying jobs are available at home and will extend a helping hand to our neighbors in need.”


  • “John James is a fantastic candidate running for Congress in Michigan’s 10th Congressional District. John was a brave combat pilot, flying the very impressive Apache Helicopter in Operation Iraqi Freedom. John isn’t just tough, but he is also very smart—he received his Master’s Degree in Supply Chain Management from Penn State and his MBA from the University of Michigan. He is a job creator and a problem solver who knows how to deliver for Michigan. What’s more important during a supply chain crisis than a supply chain expert? John James is going to be a great Republican member of Congress, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” – Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States
  • “John James is a pro-freedom, pro-military, faith-fueled, job creator that knows America’s best days are still to come. Winning the House back from Nancy Pelosi means winning in Michigan—and John is the man for the job.” – Nikki Haley, 29th US Ambassador to the United Nations
  • “John James is a successful businessman and Army veteran. After graduating from West Point, he served 8 years in the US Army, including multiple tours of duty in Iraq. John James is a man you can trust. I look forward to watching him continue to fight for all Americans.” – Tim Scott, US Senator for South Carolina
