Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is beginning to realize he made a giant mistake.
Sessions entered the race of his old Senate seat that Sessions held for 20 years before joining the Trump administration.
But Jeff Sessions immediately regretted one decision that Trump never forgave.
Donald Trump finally answered the biggest question hanging over the Alabama Senate race – would Trump endorse one of Jeff Sessions’ opponents or would the President stay neutral?
Sessions, as well as many Republicans in Washington, hoped against hope Trump would not insert himself into the race.
That ended after the “mini Tuesday” slate of primaries when Donald Trump endorsed former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville who is set to face Sessions in a March 31 runoff.
“Tommy Tuberville (@TTuberville) is running for the U.S. Senate from the Great State of Alabama. Tommy was a terrific head football coach at Auburn University. He is a REAL LEADER who will never let MAGA/KAG, or our Country, down! Tommy will protect your Second Amendment (which is under siege), is strong on Crime and the Border, and truly LOVES our Military and our Vets. He will be a great Senator for the people of Alabama. Coach Tommy Tuberville, a winner, has my Complete and Total Endorsement. I love Alabama!”
Sessions finished behind Tuberville in the first round of voting and now enters the sprint to the runoff vote as a decided underdog.
There is no doubt that Sessions fall in Alabama is 100 percent attributed to the relentless barrage of criticism President Trump directed Sessions way over Sessions recusing himself from the Russian investigation.
That decision allowed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel after which Mueller aimed his rogues’ gallery of Democrat prosecutors like a guided missile aimed at the heart of the Trump Presidency.
President Trump proceeded to fire Sessions the day after the 2018 midterm elections and most political observers figured that was the end of Sessions’ career.
When whispers that Sessions was considering entering the race for his old Senate seat began floating around Washington many Republicans scratched their heads.
Everyone in Washington knew that President Trump held hard feelings towards Sessions.
It only seemed to be a matter of time until the President made his views on the Senate race known.
Sessions tried to do a PR campaign on shows hosted by Trump supporters such as Tucker Carlson’s in hopes of convincing Trump to stay out of the race by showing Sessions strongly supported the President and his agenda.
That effort clearly failed.
Sessions was so popular in Alabama before joining the Trump administration that Sessions did not even draw an official Democrat opponent.
But all that goodwill went out the window after Sessions let down the President on the Russian investigation.
And now it appears it may cost Jeff Sessions his political career.
