Donald Trump lost confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Many Trump supporters expected a shakeup.
And now Jeff Sessions may be about to do the last thing Donald Trump ever expected.
Jeff Sessions Next Political Step
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended the speculation about his future in the Trump administration.
He resigned at Donald Trump’s request one day after the midterm elections.
But now everyone wants to know what is next.
Sessions has one obvious move.
He can run for his old Senate seat in Alabama.
Democrat Doug Jones won the seat in a stunning 2017 special election victory.
He defeated Republican Judge Roy Moore after Never Trump Republicans planted – what critics believe to be – false stories about Moore sexually abusing underage girls.
Jones is up for re-election in 2020.
Sessions would enter the race as an overwhelming favorite to win the seat.
Former Senator Luther Strange – who succeeded Sessions before losing in the GOP primary – endorsed Sessions candidacy on social media.
But there would be challenges.
Some Trump supporters soured on Sessions after the President attacked him for months after he recused himself from the Russia investigation.
But that is not anything Sessions could not overcome.
Many Trump supporters would like to see Sessions back in the Senate.
No one had any complaints about Sessions policy agenda when he ran the Justice Department.
Sessions was the first Senator to endorse Trump.
And he was known as the godfather of the nationalist conservatism that powered Trump’s movement.
In fact, before Trump entered the race, former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon wanted Sessions to enter the 2016 race to push the issues of immigration and trade.
Sessions would be another vote in the Senate against the globalists.
Trump supporters could count on him to loyally support the President’s America First agenda.
Reports indicate establishment Republican Bradley Byrne may enter the race.
Byrne is a Chamber of Commerce Republican who favors big government.
Jeff Sessions Political Prospects
Despite Trump’s criticisms of Sessions in the Russia investigation, many Trump supporters would prefer to see him in the Senate over some of the other contenders.
Many Trump supporters remember that Sessions led the effort to kill the Gang of Eight amnesty bill in 2013.
Back then, the entire GOP establishment lined up behind the legislation.
Mitt Romney lost the Presidency to Barack Obama in 2012.
And establishment Republicans blamed it on the fact Romney only won 27 percent of the Latino vote.
They ignored the fact that Romney could have won over 70 percent of the Hispanic vote and still lost.
Establishment Republicans wanted to pay off their big money donors and provide them with an endless flood of cheap labor.
Even some in the conservative media thought Republicans needed to swallow amnesty in order to win future elections.
But Sessions led the fight that sunk the bill in the House after it passed the Senate.
In many ways, the grassroots uprising Sessions led paved the way for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Trump harnessed that anti-establishment energy for his victorious White House effort.
And that’s why many Trump supporters hope Sessions runs for his old job again.
