Michigan Senate Candidate Uses Missile In 1st Television Ad

(CBS Detroit/ AP) - The Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James from Michigan uses a missile to highlight his military career in his first television ad.

The 30-second ad calls James a "conservative warrior" and talked about his military career hunting terrorists as a helicopter pilot in Iraq. He stands next to a Hellfire missile while speaking to the camera.

James says he loves America but hates politics, and he's running to secure the border, defend people's constitutional rights and protect Michigan jobs.

James, an executive in his family's Detroit-based logistics business, is vying with businessman Sandy Pensler for the Republican nomination to face Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
