HAMILTON – Jeff Sessions, who is seeking to regain his old Senate seat in Alabama, says he is supporting the president and his agenda despite President Donald Trump criticizing and pushing Sessions out of his cabinet last year.
The 73-year-old politician from Mobile announced he was running for his old Senate seat on Nov. 7, 2019—the day before qualifying ended. He had served in the position for 20 years before accepting an appointment from President Donald Trump as the U.S. Attorney General in 2017.
Sessions received blowback from the president for his recusal from overseeing the Mueller investigation in March 2017. He was asked to resign in November 2018.
Sessions’ Senate campaign announcement in November 2019 resulted in Secretary of State John Merrill suspending his campaign for the seat.
