Craig James will join The George Jarkesy Show May 24, to discuss the race for the US Senate seat. As a former professional football player and sports announcer this Texan should have interesting things to say about the current state of our political system.

Craig James spent his childhood in Jacksonville, TX and he was a running back at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. After college he became a professional football player in the USFL for the Washington Federals and then for the New England Patriots in the NFL. After retiring from the NFL in 1988, James became a very well known “College Game Day” commentator on ESPN as well as a sports reporter for ABC and CBS.

Late in 2011, James expressed his desire to run for the Texas US Senate seat as a Republican nominee. The current seat is to be vacated by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Regarding the federal budget deficit, James believes that Congress needs to adopt a Balanced Budget Amendment, setting a limit on spending. He also states, “Obamacare should absolutely be repealed by Congress if it is not ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.” Regarding the EPA’s strict requirements for American businesses, James believes that the EPA should be eliminated consequently limiting unneeded restrictions on entrepreneurship.
