Amidst a packed schedule of campaign events on a sunny September Saturday, Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James seemed most at home in a quiet museum full of veterans’ memorabilia.
While meeting with board members of the Michigan Heroes Museum in Frankenmuth, the former Army captain and West Point graduate cracked jokes with museum officials about other branches of the military and paid somber respects to Michigan residents who died in service.
At one point, Greg Rummel, the board’s president, asked James what one thing supporters could do to help bring him the win in November.
After a moment of thought, James said: “I need you to pray for me.”
“Each of you has talent and resources and abilities that I couldn’t even know what to ask for…just do what you feel led to do, and I will continue to do the same,” he continued.
