Jeff Sessions Expected to Run for Alabama Senate

Jeff Sessions Expected to Run for Alabama Senate

A Sessions’ Senate victory would cause major math problems for Democrats who are working to take over the Senate.

Jeff Sessions, former Attorney General, is expected to announce his candidacy for his old Alabama Senate seat Thursday. Sessions resigned when he accepted the post of Attorney General.

More from Fox News:

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to announce plans to enter the 2020 race for the Alabama Senate seat he held before joining the Trump administration, sources familiar with the effort tell Fox News.

The sources said the announcement is likely to happen Thursday. Sessions is scheduled to join Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday night at 8 p.m ET to discuss the race.

Should he enter the contest, he would join a crowded field of Republicans already running to take on Democratic incumbent Sen. Doug Jones. The filing deadline closes Friday afternoon.

Sessions has not spoken with President Trump or Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about running for his old Senate seat, the sources said. He has hired Curt Anderson of On Message to be his campaign consultant.

Sessions, who resigned from the Justice Department a year ago Thursday amid public attacks from the president he served, was one of Trump’s most loyal and trusted advisers before their relationship soured over his recusal from the Russia investigation.

A major question hanging over Sessions’ entrance into the race is whether Trump — who remains popular in Alabama — will take steps to thwart his bid. Trump is scheduled to visit Alabama this weekend to attend the Alabama-LSU game college football game on Saturday.

Were I a betting gal, I’d bet Trump throws his support behind Sessions. A Sessions’ Senate victory would cause major math problems for Democrats who are working to take over the Senate.

    History called and Jeff Sessions ran away.

      There’s no reliable polls that I can find, but my guess is that Tommy Tuberville beats Sessions in the primary. And Session’s presence in the race will suck in just enough votes to keep any other GOP candidate from beating Tuberville.

      TT will be the next Senator from Alabama.

        Depends on how the vote splits. Moore is also running and could pull enough votes from the others to influence, if not win, the primary.

While it would be nice to have that seat, I’m not so sure of Sessions. The whole series of actions he did while AG are at least suspect for him being part of the cabal rather than a real supporter of Trump.
His recusal at the drop of a hat before anything developed was bizarre. His lack of action on so many fields during his tenure in the position would be almost as bad as appointing Schiff, ok, not quite that bad but…, to the position of AG with Trump as President.
Keebler should stay home. He’s done enough damage just letting Rosenstein act as head, while having far more conflicts which should have recused him, so him being in the Senate might not be any better than cloning Romney and giving him and his Benedict Arnold act a second shot.

I used to have some regard for Sessions. He was fairly solid on illegal immigration. But sheesh. Once they get a whiff of that Washington crack they just can’t stay away.

What does he bring? I know nothing about Alabama. Is this a seat a young Republican conservative could have won? Or can the Dems mount a serious challenge?

Is Sessions considered a strong candidate? And if he wins, what does he do? Hang out with Romney?

Another rino do-nothing.

Is he so egotistical to think AL GOP can’t find another candidate equal to or better than him? After his inept and deceitful term as AG he should just go away. Please.

Jeff is a throw back to the ‘honorable loser Republican’ era. Somehow these fools think being honorable up against what these “Democrats” have become will be returned in kind. They never learn.

This puke should be ashamed to show his face in public.

Every dog has its day. Time for Jeff to fade away.

Sorry to say it but Lindsay “NancyBoy” Graham seems to have established more credibility.

Term limits, get’m gone and keep’m gone

Jeff Sessions is the single biggest mistake Trump made as President.

He proved himself to be an utter, useless coward that ran for cover at the slightest ridiculous pressure from Democrats and let an utter FARCE of an investigation continue for 2 years while putzing about with drug sentencing.

He’s a useless RINO that did not a single thing to fight for actual conservative principles. He needs to FOAD.

I’m wondering if Sessions wasn’t the Trump administration’s greatest pump-fakes. Remember, the IG was busy as heck behind the scenes during Sessions’ term, and although Mueller was left racing down the mountain without brakes, there is exactly *nobody* with a functioning brain cell who believes the Mueller Report was biased toward Trump. But I’m an optimist.

Mostly all that matters is getting a R in that seat. Sessions would be good enough. I think he’d win if Trump endorses and lets bygones be bygones — that’s a lot to ask of Trump and I don’t blame him if he refuses.

But Sessions looks sort of old in that picture. Can’t we get someone younger who is also sure to win?

Good. He’ll be humilated.

Democrat plant. Nearly destroyed the country.

I wouldn’t vote for the SOB in an R primary, but were he to win that then I’d hold my nose and vote for the SOB in the general.

I should move to Alabama just to be able to vote against him.

This man really stabbed Trump in the back by recusing himself after Trump hired him.

Sessions was pretty solid as a Senator – for a long time.

He was a bad fit as AG given the extraordinary circumstances at the time.

yes, sessions screwed up in a big way as a G, but he was completely over his head. He was successful for many years as a US senator, and should be supported by conservatives as a dependable Republican vote.

I agree with everyones’ comments about the terrible job Sessions did as AG. Right now, though, we need an (R) in that seat regardless. Sadly, Sessions is probably the best choice.

I wonder if there isn’t some serious skeleton in Sessions’ closet that he was reminded of, so that he recused on the day that Trump was out of touch for a few hours touring the aircraft carrier.

And if the D’s are on the verge of taking the Senate, it could be brought out of the closet anyway. I’d be wary of that, and Sessions is ambitious and can’t be trusted to mention it. Nor would the Dems keeping it in reserve.

With that in mind, now I would say no to Sessions in the primary. Trump should say no too, because he maybe can’t know this either. But I’ll rely on Trump because he has access to the intelligence.

Sessions may be doing this to ensure that the Dem wins. Are there no other Republicans who can challenge this traitorous coward?

Holy crap, calm down folks. I was born and raised in Bama, spent my early adulthood in Bama and stayed registered to vote in Bama until I was medically retired from the Army. That said:
1. Doug Jones will not be re-elected baring some monumental stupidity by the Bama republican party.
2. I would prefer Mo Brooks as the nominee but since I live in TX I don’t get a vote.
3. Sessions was and could again be a solid Senator. The man is solid on 2 2nd amendment, immigration and mostly an ‘America first’ guy in political outlook. He isn’t a Rino, but rather a gentleman who expected his opponents to play by the norms. Obviously that didn’t happen. He was hamstrung by partisan D holdovers and career folks as Barr and Durham are ferreting out.
4. He allowed himself to be nominated to AG because he was from a solid red state so R should have been able to keep the seat; unfortunately they choose a charismatic crackpot in Roy Moore and narrowly lost.
5. Either Tuberville or Brooks could easily win the seat for the R.
6. Please no Roy Moore otherwise it’s likely as not that Jones and the D steal a seat that should be R.

If Doug Jones was not even elected two years ago how can Sessions run for that seat? The other seat perhaps but not that one.

Judge in Covington Suit Makes It Official That The Politico-Media Class Has Greater Rights Than The Plebians, Ruling That Elizabeth Warren Cannot be Sued for Slandering a Child Because of “Sovereign Immunity”

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/384203.php#384203

The doctrine used to protect people like Sen. Warren is the “speech and debate” immunity related to what they say on the floor of Congress.

The fact that this novel “sovereign immunity” idea has to be applied means that speech and debate didn’t apply. She wasn’t doing it in the course of her job, but probably in the course of her campaigning.

If senators can now trash private citizens in their campaigns for reelection or promotion, and have “sovereign immunity”, that’s frightening. I think this should be appealed, because a higher court is likely to see how this use of “sovereign immunity” is a perversion of our government structure.
