A political analyst who has already predicted Jeff Sessions will be a formidable U.S. Senate candidate also predicts a truce with President Trump.
Sessions has officially entered the GOP primary days ago, hoping to face off with Democrat Doug Jones in 2020, but Sessions did not part ways with Trump on good terms after the president vocally and repeatedly protested when his then-attorney general recused himself from the Russia probe.
In a just-released campaign ad, Sessions takes the Southern Gentleman’s high road and points out he has never said a “cross word” about Trump, nor written a tell-all book, or attacked him on CNN.
“And I'll tell you why: first, that would be dishonorable. I was there to serve his agenda, not mine,” Sessions states. “Second, the president's doing a great job for America and Alabama, and he has my strong support."
Rob Chambers, director of policy and legislative affairs at the American Family Association, says Sessions understand the “pecking order” and has positioned himself as a statesman.
“So regardless of what President Trump may have said about Jeff Sessions in the past,” says Chambers, “I don't think that's a guarantee of a future blistering."
Chambers told OneNewsNow in a Nov. 11 story that he predicts Sessions will spell big trouble for Jones, who narrowly won election in 2017 over Roy Moore, who is running for the GOP nomination along with Tommy Tuberville, the former Auburn football coach; and U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne.
“The people of Alabama know the cards they were dealt with Doug Jones,” Chamber advises. “Conservatives in Alabama know they're ready for a change, and they know that Alabama is not a liberal state.”
