James Mackler Raises $451k for US Senate Campaign

NASHVILLE – James Mackler, a Nashville attorney and decorated Iraq combat veteran that served in the 101st Airborne Division, today announced that his campaign for U.S. Senate has raised more than $451,000 since launching his campaign April 17th.

James received 3,639 individual donations from Tennesseans in 77 counties, with 80% coming from in-state donors. Raised entirely from individuals, 87% of donations received were less than $200.

“I am proud that this campaign has attracted so much interest, and investment, from so many individuals across Tennessee,” said James. “I am not a politician and it’s both humbling and encouraging to see this type of grassroots support for our campaign to change Washington.”

Upon his return from Iraq, James transferred to the Judge Advocate General Corps where he he prosecuted murderers and rapists. In civilian practice, he’s continued to work finding ways to apply the law to improve the lives of others.

James left the active duty in 2011 but continues to serve in the Tennessee Air National Guard. A graduate of Duke University, he earned a law degree from the University of Washington.
