Nashville — Public figures and political organizations continue to endorse candidates for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Republican Lamar Alexander ahead of Aug. 6 primaries.

In the Democratic primary, most major political groups, including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, are behind Nashville attorney James Mackler. The veteran got another boost this week as the Tennessee chapter of labor group AFL-CIO endorsed his campaign.

“I know James will stand up for Tennessee’s working families and fight for what’s right,” chapter president Billy Dycus said.
