James Mackler for US Senator from Tennessee
“Tennesseans all across our state tell me they’re sick of career politicians not listening to them. They’re fed up with folks putting partisanship ahead of people while Tennesseans suffer the consequences.
We have rural hospitals closing, opioids are ravaging our communities, and the trade war that already hurt us more than any other state is getting worse. But my opponent Bill Hagerty says everything is great and promises more of the same.
I’m running for Senate to serve all Tennesseans.” – James Mackler
