Jeff Sessions, ousted as President Trumps attorney general this week, is contemplating a run for his old Alabama Senate seat in 2020 against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones -- though those who know Sessions aren't convinced he will ultimately pull the trigger on another campaign.
A source close to the former attorney general told Fox News that Sessions is considering it but his mind isn't made up. That person added that Sessions, known for his stances on illegal immigration and trade, was advocating for the Trump agenda back when it was called the Sessions agenda.
Others, though, dont see Sen. Sessions 2.0 actually happening.
He should spend his time being the devoted husband, father, and grandfather we know he is, said Garrett Murch, a former Sessions Senate aide.
Another plugged-in Alabama politico who knows Sessions said, I think he plans to have a private life.
Sessions told Judith Miller in a Wall Street Journal interview published Friday that he hasnt decided on his future plans, though said, I want some family time and to let my head clear.
Sessions also defended Special Counsel Robert Muellers probe in the interview, saying hes confident it will be handled appropriately and with justification.
While he didnt rule out a run, Sessions told the paper he is now drawn more to executive, rather than legislative, public service.
Still, those in Alabama touting a possible Sessions return to the Senate include Luther Strange, the Republican who temporarily replaced Sessions in the Senate last year. In a tweet Wednesday, Strange said, Jeff Sessions for Senate in 2020!

He’ll have competition if he runs. Age-wise, he ought to retire.
That traitorous rat bastard’s name is MUD. He’ll be lucky to be accepted at an old folks home.
Go for it!
I wouldn’t mind seeing Sessions primary that b@$$turd Sen. Shelby.
Yeah sure Jeff, I’ll bet all those republicans you sold out to Rosenstein on will be chomping at the bit to vote for you.
Just retire, Jeff. It’s over. Your political career is FUBAR.
He could always reapply for his old job at the hollow tree stump baking cookies.
He can run under the “Deep State Party”. I hear he’ll be a sleeper candidate.
In this article I see two more examples showing that Sessions is really clueless:
1. He would grant an interview to Judith Miller
2. He is now drawn more to executive service
How much did it weigh?
You totally #’d up, Sessions. Go home.
He’s been retired now....but like most men in politics for so long they can’t stay away from it for long.....it’s like years of addiction you can never get out of your mind.
He’ll be 74 in 2020. It’s time for new blood.
Judith Miller is far less offensive than average beltway reporter
She took a bullet once rhetorically
Jeff should go back to making cookies.
Are we making book on this? I bet he runs, and I’ll take 3 to 1 odds up to 10 Freeper Points against those who bet he won’t run.
“Hes been retired now....but like most men in politics for so long they cant stay away from it for long.....its like years of addiction you can never get out of your mind.”
They do actually see themselves as the “elite.” And only the “elite” can do the job so he has to get back in the game. He can’t stand the thought of being out of the club after so many years.
You this dumb? Or Is trump a dumb dumb? Trump puts sessions #1 guy in at doj. The guy who has been his hand picked #1 confidante to sessions. Rosenstein has known Whitaker for over a 2 decades and are friends. So trump picks the most according to u incompetent ag he pics his number 1 guy? The guy sessions had to have. Wow trump a dumb dumb. Sessions will go down as the greatest attorney general.
