SESSIONS IN SHOWDOWN TO RECLAIM HIS OLD ALABAMA SENATE SEAT

Alabama Politics

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will try to beat back a slate of aggressive competitors in Alabama’s Republican Senate primary.

The Tuesday primary will test how much President Donald Trump’s past censure has damaged Sessions in the deep red state.

Sessions is now part of a seven-person field along with former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore jockeying for the GOP nomination and the right to challenge Democratic Sen. Doug Jones in November.

The Republican primary is expected to head to a runoff between the top two finishers.
