GOP lawmakers are pushing for John James, a failed Senate candidate in the 2018, to run for Congress in Michigan next year.

James is a West Point graduate and Iraq War veteran who ran against Sen. Debbie Stabenow in the 2018 midterm election, but lost by 6.5 percentage points.

Now top House and Senate Republicans are encouraging him to run again, sources told Politico. The push is twofold. Republicans in the Senate hope James will challenge Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., to bolster the GOP majority. On the House side, Republicans want him to run in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District near Detroit, a seat held by freshman Rep. Haley Stevens, a Democrat.
