Jeff Sessions to announce run for Senate

Jeff Sessions to announce run for Senate”

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is poised to announce his intention to run for U.S. Senate in Alabama on Thursday.

President Trump's former attorney general and long-time Alabama Republican senator is expected to announce he is once again running for the seat he held for 20 years, according to two GOP sources.

He was forced out of office last November after repeatedly clashing with Trump.

Trump soured on Sessions after the attorney general recused himself from the investigation into Russian election interference and appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to head the probe.

If Sessions enters the race, he faces a bitter battle if Trump, his former boss, decides to campaign against him. At least one of Sessions's potential primary rivals, Rep. Bradley Byrne, made clear in a statement that he will not get out if Sessions gets in. Republicans see the Senate seat in Alabama as a must win in 2020.

Some Republican consultants and lawmakers have questioned why Sessions was getting into the race. One GOP consultant with experience in Alabama, who is not affiliated with any of the candidates, said Byrne and Tuberville had proven strengths as candidates, which have quelled fears that Moore could emerge from a crowded primary as the nominee.
