Last Thursday I interviewed John James, John is a candidate in the Republican primary running to be Michigan's next U.S. Senator.

I asked John to let us know a little about himself since he is new to politics.

John is married with 2 children, he graduated from West Point in 2004, and is a combat veteran and businessman.  In fact he came back from the Army in 2012 to help run his family's business in Detroit.

I asked John about his core beliefs in which he will base his votes on any bills that come in front of the Senate.

Find out what John had to say about what he learned growing up, at West Point, serving in the Army and running his family's business.  Also what would be his legislative priorities if he was to win.
