NASHVILLE – Believe in Service, a political action committee founded by Iraq war combat veteran James Mackler to support federal candidates who will protect and expand vital national service programs, today endorsed three challengers and five incumbents running for U.S. Senate. Fueled by individual contributions from donors who want to support and expand national and civic service programs, Believe in Service donates directly to candidates running against anti-service extremists.

Believe in Service endorsed and made a maximum contribution to U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (WI), Governor Phil Bredesen (TN), U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (OH), U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (FL), U.S. Rep. Jacky Rosen (NV)U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (MI), and U.S. Senator Jon Tester (MT).

“I’m honored to announce Believe in Service’s support for so many upstanding public servants running for U.S. Senate,” said James Mackler. “While the majority in Washington prioritizes serving special interest donors over service to our nation, we need voices in the U.S. Senate that will protect and expand our vital national service programs like AmeriCorps that provide so many opportunities for service here and abroad.”

Unlike Congress, voters do not view national service as a partisan issue. A survey conducted by Republican polling firm TargetPoint found that 83% of voters want Congress to maintain or increase federal spending on national service programs. The strong bipartisan consensus includes support from 78% of Republicans, 84% of Independents and 90% of Democrats. Economists have found that each dollar invested in national service generates $3.95 in terms of higher earnings, increased output and other community benefits.
