Trump's ex-attorney general Jeff Sessions seeks US Senate return

Trump's ex-attorney general Jeff Sessions seeks US Senate return Trump's ex-attorney general Jeff Sessions seeks US Senate return

The announcement came a year after President Donald Trump fired Sessions from his dream job, and their relationship will now be a determining factor in the race.

Sessions, who was the first senator to endorse Trump's campaign, suffered a huge falling out with the president over his decision to recuse himself from the federal probe into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

Sessions was senator until becoming Trump's first attorney general in 2017.

Despite the falling out during his time at the White House, he has praised the president for doing great things for America.

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? Sessions also said he was one of the first senators to endorse his bid for president in the 2016 elections.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to return to his old Senate seat from Alabama.

Sessions, 72, served an at-times tumultuous tenure as the nation's highest-ranking law enforcement officer - drawing President Trump's ire after he recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation and left his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, in charge.

And while politicians, operatives and analysts expect Sessions to become an immediate frontrunner for the GOP nomination, the big unknown is how Trump and his Alabama supporters will react.

"When President Trump took on Washington, only one senator out of a hundred had the courage to stand with him: me", he says. "The campaign's going to be a lot about what President Trump said about Jeff Sessions".

Republican Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama said he would support Sessions.

"I like him very much...but I don't know who else is in the race to be honest with you", stated Kennedy. Additional candidates include Rep. Bradley Byrne, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, state Rep. Arnold Mooney and Roy Moore, the former judge who previously lost the special election to Jones in 2017 amid allegations of sexual misconduct towards underage teens. "I know there is some other Republican candidates - Doug will be the Democrat nominee".

Jeff Sessions said Thursday that he was entering the race for his old Senate seat.

Mr Sessions, 72, held his Senate seat for two decades before serving as AG.
