NASHVILLEBelieve 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 U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in her reelection campaign. Senator Stabenow has been a long-time advocate of public service programs, and is a member of the bipartisan National Service Congressional Caucus.

“Senator Debbie Stabenow believes in service and has spent her career advocating for Michiganders,” said James Mackler. “We need Senator Stabenow’s voice in the U.S. Senate to continue to protect and expand our vital national service programs like AmeriCorps that provide so many opportunities for service here and abroad. We’re proud to support her reelection.”

“National service programs like AmeriCorps provide young people with valuable skills, job opportunities, and a chance to make their communities a better place to live,” said Senator Stabenow. “I thank James Mackler for his service to our nation and his ongoing commitment to give the next generation of leaders an opportunity to serve our nation.”

Unlike the majority in 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.
