Robert O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL involved in the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, hit the shooting range with Michigan GOP Senate candidate John James on Monday, after campaigning across the state with the Army combat veteran.
The two made several stops throughout the state and ended the night at a gun range in Detroit, Mich., for a friendly “speed and accuracy” competition between the two veterans. O’Neill endorsed James in early November.
The two used 9mm handguns and shot ten shots each at a target 30 yards away.
James faces Robert Young and Sandy Pensler in the Michigan GOP primary for the election. Young, who served on the Michigan States Supreme Court, entered the race in June. Pensler, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 1992 and has faced questions over previous pro-choice positions, entered the race in November.
O’Neill said he endorsed James because he believes the candidate will create jobs and opportunities for families, and said the two share a mutual belief in “faith and family, God and country, service before self, and high core values.”
“John represents the best America has to offer,” O’Neill told TheDCNF. “His relevant experience graduating from West Point and serving in combat makes him just the person Michigan, and America, needs in the US Senate.”
