Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Thursday night that he is launching a campaign to run for U.S. Senate again in Alabama, telling Fox News' Tucker Carlson that he wants to go to war for the Trump administration in the Senate.
"I have some convictions that I think need to be pushed. We need to get some Republicans moving,"
Sessions told Carlson, "They haven't been pushing hard enough to advance the Trump agenda. And so, that what I look forward to doing, and I think I can contribute to that."
"So, politics famously intruded on your tenure at the Department of Justice,"
Carlson responded. "We can get into that in a minute, but it raised the question of your relationship with President Trump, which I think you address fairly directly in a new political ad."
After Carlson aired Sessions' new campaign video, Session responded, "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. And 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 has your strong support. Do you have his strong support?"
Sessions replied, "Well, I hope so. I think he will respect my work. I was there for the Trump agenda every day I was in the Senate. No doubt about it; I was the first Republican - first senator to endorse him."
