James has already served his country. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and a former Army combat pilot. In 2018, James was defeated in his race against Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich. — a throwaway race in which he performed unexpectedly well. But 2020 shouldn't be about what James has done before, but rather what he can do now.
A man of great character, intellect, and conservative values, James can do a lot. During the 2018 campaign, James repeatedly showed a mix of humor and grace, but also a fierce commitment to advancing conservatism in America.
A business owner, James believes in aspiration and hard work. And he knows that those qualities are the best possible pathways to individual prosperity and happiness. These values are crucial in their moral essence but also in their contemporary political importance. That's where 2020 comes in.
After all, the Democratic Party is overtly moving toward socialistic ideology. Speaking the language of socialism, Democrats want to change America from that which has made it great — individual rights, free markets, economic freedom, and voluntary civil society.
Conservatives need candidates like James who can articulate ideas like these. James, an African American, is both acutely aware of the reality of racial prejudice and emblematic of the fact that hard work is the best path to a happier life. Like Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., James would thus be uniquely placed to help skeptical Americans to see the merits of conservative policy.
It is crucial that the Republican Party not be defined solely by President Trump's rhetoric, even as Republicans avoid alienating Trump voters. We need candidates who can win favor from the GOP base and simultaneously broaden it.
Could James win? Sure. While it's still early days, a March poll showed James just one point behind the incumbent he would face, Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich.
Mr. James, it's time to pick up the mantle of service once again.
