James Mackler announces Democratic bid for Lamar Alexander's US Senate seat

James Mackler, who ditched a Democratic run for U.S. Senate in Tennessee last year, says he's now running in 2020, becoming the first candidate in either major party to declare a candidacy for the seat to be vacated by the retiring Sen. Lamar Alexander.

Mackler, a 46-year-old Nashville attorney and Iraq War veteran, announced his campaign in an online video Tuesday, looking to clear a Democratic lane still nearly two years out from the election. ... 513559002/

Well, John Wolfe Jr the 64-year-old Chattanooga attorney, and perennial Democratic party political candidate for Tennessee is 64. Retirement age I would think.

This being James Mackler's second run, if he goes forward it will transfer the mantel of the perennial political candidate for Tennessee over to a younger attorney's competent hands, insuring that going forward any campaign donations he can find in Tennessee will continue to find a safe rest home where they can eventually be legally converted into a means of living.

That sounds like doing Tennessee a public service doesn't it???

Mackler doesn't have Wikipedia page yet. His last ditched attempt to run didn't yield him one. I did find a photo of him:


Wow, right off the bat I can see campaign swag potential in his image. Imagine the image of his head cast in rubber eraser material, made to fit on the back end of a pencil, he could hand them out at meetings and campaign events like they were candy. Winning their hearts and minds with small acts, something he would have learned in Iraq.

Win people over to get their small campaign contributions and votes without much wasteful spending on that campaign.
