Jeff Sessions stresses Trump loyalty in Alabama Senate race

Jan 27, 2020

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is emphasizing his loyalty to President Donald Trump as he seeks to reclaim the  U.S. Senate seat he held for 20 years.

The former senator from Alabama faces a competitive primary that will test how much Trump’s past criticisms have damaged his support in the deeply red state. Sessions was forced to resign as Trump's first attorney general after his recusal from the Russia inquiry prompted blistering public criticism from the president.

Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore are among the other candidates seeking the GOP nomination.
