In the ad, which will run on broadcast and cable channels, a narrator quotes Trump’s glowing tweets about James and calls James “President Trump’s choice for Senate.” James is an executive in his family’s Detroit-based automotive logistics companies and a veteran of the Iraq War.

The winner of the primary will face third-term Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November.
