Combat veteran John James won his primary GOP contest in MI. That sets the stage for him to face off against Democrat Senator Gary Peters for Michigan’s Senate seat in the rapidly approaching November 3, 2020 general election.
James’ win was is in some ways the polar opposite of the victory in Missouri yesterday of what left-of-center CNBC called nurse “Cori Bush, who became active in the Black Lives Matter movement following the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.”
The Black Lives Matter Movement didn’t suddenly arise in the Trump Administration era. Rather, it began during the Obama Administration, as the CNBC reference suggests.
This video is from left-of-center ABC News.
James Twitter feed has these posts, which will be contrasted with posts about BLM’s Bush.
America is the only country where you can go from slave to Senator in 4 generations & poverty to prosperity in 1. I am the result of the American Dream because of others’ sacrifices.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Phil 4:13. Two years ago, we had to fight to win the primary. This year, we ran unopposed. Two years ago, we were down double digits. This year, the race is virtually TIED! Praise God. He has brought us so far. pic.twitter.com/vAWpDmkAXK

Cori Bush earned plaudits from several progressive, socialist, and further left Democrats. Self-described Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is one of them.
Congratulations to @CoriBush on her primary victory tonight! She is a true progressive who stands with working people and will take on the corporate elite of this country when she gets to Congress. pic.twitter.com/Q3hJGasjXe

Here is another plug from a socialist Sanders supporter, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) (NY-D).
You‘ve shown that the power of grassroots, mass-movement politics is stronger than gatekeepers & big money – it’s about advancing the tide of justice whose time has come. https://t.co/mYOZKxitEW

Those two results tee up the balance of yesterday’s primary voting from both major parties.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet
MHProNews analysis in brief. President Trump has had a steady stream of pro-Trump candidates that he has supported win among Republicans. Democrats are seeing a continuing drift to the left-wing of their party.
With just 90 days to November 3, 2020, the following is according to CNBC:
- Voters in Tuesday’s primaries picked the candidates in key Senate races in Arizona and Michigan.
- Missouri voted to become the 38th state to expand Medicaid.
- Progressive Cori Bush defeated 10-term Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay in Missouri, while Rep. Steve Watkins, who faces illegal voting charges, lost his GOP primary in Kansas to Jake LaTurner.
Here are Tuesday’s key results, based on race calls from the AP:
- Democratic former astronaut Mark Kelly won his Arizona Senate primary and will try to unseat Republican Sen. Martha McSally in a race to fill the remainder of late Sen. John McCain’s term through 2022. McSally is among the most vulnerable senators running this year. Kelly has raised more money than his Republican opponent and has consistently led her in polls.
- Republican Army veteran John James advanced to face Democratic Sen. Gary Petersin Michigan’s Senate race. The fact that President Donald Trump won the state in 2016 makes it one of the GOP’s best pickup opportunities in a challenging year. But recent polls have found a comfortable lead for Peters as Trump loses traction in the state.
- The GOP avoided a potential electoral mess in Kansas, where Rep. Roger Marshall defeated former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach in the Republican Senate primary. Republicans see Marshall as a better choice than Kobach, an anti-immigrant candidate who lost the state’s gubernatorial race to Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly in 2018. State Sen. Barbara Bollier won the Democratic Senate nomination on Tuesday.
- Nurse Cori Bush, who became active in the Black Lives Matter movement following the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, defeated 10-term Rep. Lacy Clay in the Democratic primary for state’s 1st Congressional District. Bush, who supports progressive policies such as “Medicare for All” and a Green New Deal, effectively won the blue St. Louis-based seat by prevailing in the primary.
- Kansas Treasurer Jake LaTurner unseated Rep. Steve Watkins in the GOP primary for the state’s 2nd Congressional District. The first-term congressman was charged in July with voting illegally in 2019, but has denied wrongdoing. LaTurner will face Democratic Topeka Mayor Michelle De La Isla in the general election.
- Missouri, a Republican-leaning state where leaders previously declined to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, voted to boost enrollment in the program. It becomes the second conservative state to vote to expand Medicaid during the coronavirus pandemic, after Oklahoma did so earlier this year.
Additionally, from the BLM website includes the following statements.
“We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.
We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise.”
There is a case being made by the two major parties that each has a dramatically different vision of America that will be front and center on the November 3, 2020 ballots. To learn more background, see the related reports.
