Home / Michigan Senate candidate calls Giuliani 'Randy' after he bungles endorsement

GOP Michigan Senate candidate John James poked fun at former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) after Giuliani accidentally misnamed him in his endorsement ahead of next week’s midterm elections.

“Don James is running for Senate in Michigan. He is a combat veteran, a successful business man and believes in lower taxes, more jobs, effective health care and safety and security,” Giuliani wrote.

James jokingly referred to Giuliani as “Randy” in a tweet late Thursday night thanking him for his support. 

“Thanks, Randy! While you were leading NYC through the aftermath of 9/11, I was at West Point training to bring terrorists to justice,” James wrote.

President Trump has also endorsed James.

Stabenow, however, has consistently led James in the polls and held a 9-point lead in a survey on Monday.

Democrats likely need to retain the seat if they have any hope of taking back the upper chamber. Michigan is one of 10 states won by Trump in 2016 that features a Democratic Senate incumbent running for reelection.

Trump won the state by roughly 10,000 votes.
