LCV Victory Fund's Dirty Dozen - John James

John James

2020 Dirty Dozen

While Michigan Senate candidate and businessperson John James has no political record to speak of, he has a history of making statements against environmental regulation and climate action. James is endorsed by the Koch-founded group FreedomWorks, which supports an agenda of “rolling back environmental regulations” and has opposed a budget that restored funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GRLI) after the White House tried to cut it. James has said he supports the Trump agenda “2000%” and has refused to stand up to the administration’s policies that hurt the Great Lakes, including Trump’s opposition to new PFAS cleanup standards. James has taken more than $290,000 in campaign contributions from oil and gas interests.
