    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.

    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”

    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.
