Rep.Mo Brooks has offered to drop out of the Alabama Senate race in other to allow Attorney General Jeff Sessions reclaim his former seat in the Congress upper chamber.
The proposal would involve all the nine candidates running for the seat dropping out of the contest, allowing the Alabama GOP to appoint Sessions as their nominee and run him in the general election. Following Trump’s incessant critique of Sessions recusal from the ongoing Russian investigations in the past few days, and asked why Sessions was not conducting an investigation into Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s emails.
He also added that Sessions “can return to the Senate where he has served us so well and that Trump can then appoint whomever he wants as the Attorney General”.
Ending the statement with; “I recognize that President Trump is popular in Alabama, my closest friends and political advisers have told me to not side with Jeff Sessions, that it will cost me politically to do so. My response is simple: I don’t care. If this costs me politically, that’s fine but I am going to the right thing for Alabama and America. I stand with Jeff Sessions”.
Brook’s offer will most likely be rejected by the other candidates and seems to be a campaign for Brooks to attach himself to the Attorney General.
