Jeff Sessions Expected To Announce Run For His Old Senate Seat

According to CNN, Sessions, who was also a U.S. Senator from Alabama, is expected to announce his candidacy for his old seat on Thursday.

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

"I had a great tenure at the Department of Justice. and I don't ever worry about regretting things like that". In 2017, Trump rewarded Sessions, who served as a former USA attorney and state attorney general before being elected to the Senate in 1996, to lead the Justice Department.

But Sessions did not leave on good terms.

Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville made it a point to mention President Trump's criticism of Sessions in a tweet.

"As everyone knows, President Trump and I have had our ups and downs. No", Sessions said in a press release and campaign ad announcing his candidacy.

In response, Carlson asked whether he had Trump's support. "I hope that happens". "I think she may have been as direct as saying that Gordon Sondland lies about conversations that occur in the Oval Office", he said.

Sessions said that would be "dishonorable" and that he served as the nation's top law enforcement officer to serve Trump's agenda, "not mine".

Republicans are already facing an uphill climb. Doug Jones, a Democrat.

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

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is close to Trump, said Sessions was "a great senator" but said he would stay out of the race. Howell Heflin retired in 1997 following almost two decades in office.

Jeff Sessions said Thursday that he was entering the race for his old Senate seat. He has hired Curt Anderson of On Message to be his campaign consultant.

Sessions, 72, represented the conservative southern state in the Senate from 1997 to 2017, when he resigned to become Trump's attorney general.

Fellow Alabama Republican Senator Richard Shelby already said he would endorse Sessions and give him full support.

Byrne slammed Sessions, claiming he "ran away" instead of defending the president during the Russian Federation investigation and impeachment inquiry. "I won't sit back and watch them destroy our country", Byrne said.

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