White House adviser Kellyanne Conway stumped in Taylor on Sunday for Army veteran John James (R).

“James would be a ‘reliable’ vote on issues such as military funding, tax cuts and free enterprise, said Conway, who managed Republican President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign before joining him in the White House.”

Conway urged attendees to vote on Tuesday: "You’ve got to convert that palpable excitement into political engagement."

"Conway rarely mentioned other Michigan Republicans, making it clear she was there to assist James. It was a make-up event after she was forced to cancel a Thursday night stop because of a malfunction with a plane she was expected to fly on from New Mexico."

Though Conway stood in front of a large campaign sign for state Attorney General Bill Schuette (R), who is running for governor and was in attendance, Conway didn’t acknowledge him or his bid. (Detroit News)
