U.S. Senate candidate John James of Michigan discussed the anniversary of 9/11, on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, and said more combat veterans must run for Congress to help keep America safe.

“At West Point, we have a number of captains and majors and lieutenant colonels who are more seasoned who have been preparing their entire careers to lead us into combat,” the Republican candidate said. “As we come out to lieutenants, we look to these men and women to lead us effectively. After having that background, they understood the ground swell of terror that was coming around the world.”

“This is a dangerous place. And as the world becomes a more and more dangerous place, we need combat veterans on the floor of the U.S. Senate who understand how to keep Americans safe, because they’ve done it before,” he continued.

“This is serious business. And so I’m prepared to do what I can to continue my service to the nation and to continue my service to my state and it’s an outstanding obligation and honor,” James said.
