From the Associated Press — U.S. Senate candidate John James has begun an in-person tour of Michigan amid the pandemic, visiting a Jackson County farm to criticize the overregulation and overtaxation of farmers. Monday’s stop is believed to be the Republican’s first solo one, with reporters, outside of appearing with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The challenger to Democratic Senator Gary Peters had been gearing up for a more visible public schedule when the coronavirus struck. He says small businesses need help and aren’t getting it from Peters. Democrats say James supports Trump’s agenda, including trade wars that have threatened farmers’ livelihoods.
