We were already rooting for Michigan Senate Republican candidate John James, but now we’re rooting for him extra hard because we know just how much it would bother a certain reporter at the Huron Daily Tribune.

The Daily Caller reports:

Brenda Battel, a reporter for Huron Daily Tribune, left the voicemail on James’s campaign offices phone number at 3:40 PM Monday, requesting the interview for Wednesday, the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. In the voicemail, she expresses her interest in interviewing James, believes she hung up the phone, and then goes on to curse about a possible James victory, saying she doesn’t think it will happen.

Battel attempts to hang up after giving her number, but the phone remains connected.

“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! F**king John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel continued.

Oops.

Yeah, that “Fake News” T-shirt had no place in the Newseum.
