Mackler senate candidate
A prospective candidate has announced his intention to seek a US Senate seat from Tennessee. James Mackler, a Nashville attorney and Iraq War veteran, is the first Tennessee Democrat to announce plans to run in 2018 for the state's U.S. Senate seat held by U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee. Mackler highlighted his military background saying he's "running to restore respect, honesty, and most importantly, integrity in Washington." “Our country has become so divided that our leaders refuse to work together to solve our most important problems," Mackler said in a statement. "As a veteran, I know first hand the strength of teamwork, cooperation, and the benefits of diversity to accomplish even the most difficult mission." Mackler, 44, spent three years as a Blackhawk helicopter pilot and continues serving in the Tennessee Air National Guard. Corker has not decided if he will seek re-election.
