Diana Onyejiaka, a Nashville-based consultant and professor, has joined the Democratic field seeking to succeed Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, the Nashville Post reports. Onyejiaka graduated from Southern University Law Center — though she is not a practicing attorney — and runs DC Consult International, which focuses on international business and government relations. Onyejiaka also has taught law and government as an adjunct professor at Tennessee State University and Middle Tennessee State University and has worked as a mediator. She joins Nashville attorney James Mackler, who entered the Democratic primary back in January, and Memphis environmental activist Marquita Bradshaw, who announced earlier this month she is running.
