Ex-US AG Jeff Sessions enters Alabama Senate race

Jeff Sessions Expected To Announce Run For His Old Senate Seat

Jeff Sessions Expected To Announce Run For His Old Senate Seat

"As for the general election, Sessions would certainly be the favorite given that it is a presidential year". Ever since Sessions chose to recuse himself from the investigation into Trump's firing of James Comey, which led to the two-year-long Special Counsel probe, Trump has held a deep grudge for what he views was a grave betrayal by his first attorney general.

The two Republicans confirmed to The Associated Press that Sessions is expected to announce his candidacy Thursday. In 2017, Trump rewarded Sessions, who served as a former U.S. attorney and state attorney general before being elected to the Senate in 1996, to lead the Justice Department.

"And I'll tell you why", Sessions continued.

"Time for Jeff to hang up the cleats".

But Brenda Horn, an accountant and Brown's sister-in-law, said Sessions will get her vote, because "he was and will be a wonderful senator".

Despite his rocky past relationship with the president, the election strategy of Sessions seems to include praising his former boss. Trump is scheduled to visit Alabama this weekend to attend the Alabama-LSU game college football game on Saturday.

"If I return to the Senate, no senator in the Senate would be more effective in advancing President Trump's agenda than I would", Sessions told Carlson.

TRUMP: And I said, why the hell didn't he tell me that before I put him in?

"From the Mueller investigation to this impeachment sham, President Trump has been under constant attack", said Representative Bradley Byrne, one of several candidates.

Jeff Sessions Formally Announces Senate Candidacy
In announcing his candidacy, Sessions noted that he hasn't criticized the president since leaving the administration. Trump has called his former AG "a total disaster" and an "embarrassment to the great state of Alabama".

Southwest and American extend 737 MAX cancellation
United Airlines and American Airlines, the other two USA operators of the jet, have cancelled their 737 Max flights into January. Regulators began reviewing Boeing's technical documentation within the last week, and the audit has not been completed.

"When President Trump took on Washington, only one Senator out of a hundred had the courage to stand with him: me", his statement read.

P nomination. I have this little clip from Trump campaigning in Alabama in 2015. I was his strongest advocate. "I still am. We must make America great again".

Though its intent is clear - seeking Trump's endorsement in a crowded primary field - the 30-second spot raises multiple production questions: Did it cost more or less than Sessions's lunch on shoot day?

But after being publicly ridiculed by the president, Sessions was ousted on November 7, 2018.

Sessions sought to remind voters of his own allegiance to the president, noting his early backing in the 2016 race. The seat is now held by Democrat Doug Jones, who pulled off a huge upset in 2018.

Jones, a Democrat, won the seat after Sessions left it in 2017 to become attorney general. "I know there is some other Republican candidates - Doug will be the Democrat nominee".

Other candidates have included Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, businessman Stanley Adair and state Rep. Arnold Mooney.

As of this writing, Trump does not yet appear to have commented on the candidacy of Sessions.
