Jeff Sessions officially kicked-off his latest bid to retake his former Alabama Senate seat Thursday night; making the announcement exactly one year after he resigned as Attorney General of the United States.
“Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is using his first campaign ad as a 2020 Senate candidate in Alabama to try moving past his strained relationship with President Trump, saying the president ‘has my full support,’” reports Fox News.
“When I left President Trump’s Cabinet, did I write a tell-all book? No. Did I go on CNN and attack the president? Nope. Have I said a cross word about our president? Not one time,” said Sessions.
“I’ll tell you why: First, that would be dishonorable. I was there to serve his agenda, not mine. Second, the president is doing a great job for America and Alabama, and he has my strong support,” he added.
The President routinely criticized Sessions for his handling of Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, and his immediate recusal from the investigation.
