• Jeff Sessions Will Opt for the High-Road Re Trump as He Mounts Senate Run

    Surge Summary: One political commentator expects former- Alabama Senator and Donald Trump’s one-time Attorney General Jeff Sessions to conduct himself with comity and loyalty to the president as Sessions pursues a fresh run for the Senate. Will Donald Trump respond to Sessions in the same way?

    A political analyst who forecasts Jeff Sessions will turn out to be a formidable U.S. Senate candidate also predicts the emergence of a truce between him and President Trump.

    From Chad Groening/OneNewsNow.com:

    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 Chamber is director of policy and legislative affairs at the American Family Association. He believes Sessions has a handle on the “pecking order” and is positioning 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.”

    Here’s hoping Chambers is correct in this hopefulness. Whatever one thinks about Sessions, his policy recommendations and any mistakes he made or didn’t make while serving as Trump AG, the guy is a class act who has conducted himself with dignity all the way throughout.

    It would be heartening if his example inspired the President to follow suit – if he’d choose to not respond to Sessions’ newest endeavor the way he typically does toward those who’ve disappointed him, crossed him, or fallen out of his favor for any reason: to wit, derisive name-calling, insults, ad hominem attacks, etc.

    In a Nov. 11 story, Chambers predicted to OneNewsNow that Sessions will present the Democrat Jones with a real challenge. Jones narrowly seized victory in 2017 over Republican Roy Moore. Moore is once again running for the GOP nomination – and, along with Sessions, being joined by 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.”
