    The Right to Life of Michigan political action committee (PAC) announced Wednesday it’s endorsing for 2020 President Donald Trump and John James, a Republican running against U.S. Sen. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Twp.).

    The group noted that early endorsements “are rare.”

    James announces U.S. Senate bid on ‘Fox & Friends’

    RLM-PAC Chairman Paul Miller said that James’ endorsement could help secure the anti-abortion rights majority in the U.S. Senate, which is “vital” after the fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump last year and was publicly accused of sexual assault. The GOP-controlled Senate confirmed him.

    On July 4, the National Right to Life Committee endorsed Trump. The RLM-PAC affirmed the endorsement for Michigan.
