    Jeff Sessions’ path to regaining a place in the U.S. Senate may have gotten a little bit easier. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill decided to end his own run for Senate yesterday specifically citing the ex-Attorney General’s entry into the race in his campaign suspension announcement on Facebook. With the announcement by Senator Jeff Sessions on November 7th, the dynamics of this election have changed dramatically. When I entered the race on June 25th, I, along with my family and closest supporters, saw a path to victory. We met our initial goals and had six months of successful...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce he’s running for his old Senate seat in Alabama. Sessions is expected to make the announcement on Thursday. His decision to run was confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday by two Republicans with direct knowledge of his plans. They were not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Sessions long held the seat he will now pursue but stepped down to serve as President Donald Trump’s first attorney general. He was ousted after enduring public mocking from Trump for recusing himself from special counsel Robert...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - John Merrill officially announced Tuesday he will run for the U.S. Senate. Merrill made the announcement around 10 a.m. Tuesday, releasing a video on social media. Merrill was elected Alabama’s chief elections officer in 2014 and won re-election in 2018. The Senate seat is currently held by Democrat Doug Jones, who defeated Republican Roy Moore in a 2017 special election.

    Alabama Republican Roy Moore has announced he is running for U.S. Senate again in 2020 after failing to win the seat two years ago amid sexual misconduct accusations. Moore announced his campaign Thursday, seeking an eventual rematch against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones. The announcement upends an election viewed by Republicans as a top priority in 2020 and ignores President Donald Trump's warning that he "cannot win."

    Three people with direct knowledge of Moore’s thinking say they expect him to jump into the 2020 race. They requested anonymity to speak before Moore’s announcement and noted the former judge has been unpredictable and could decide at the last minute not to run.

    Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is set to announce his plans for the 2020 Alabama senate race on Thursday at 2 p.m. at The Ballroom in Montgomery. Moore lost the U.S. Senate race in 2017 amid allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers. Moore denied the allegations. President Donald Trump last month tweeted that Moore “cannot win” and said Republicans need to retake the seat in the once reliable red state. Democratic Sen. Doug Jones currently holds the position. The event is open to invited guests and credentialed press.

    Roy Moore, who lost a 2017 Senate race after a string of claims of sexual misconduct with teenage girls, is running for the seat again in 2020 in what could become a rematch against the Democrat who beat him. Moore, 72, told a gathering of grassroots Republicans in Alabama this weekend that he will announce his candidacy in a matter of weeks, the Washington Examiner reported. If he wins the GOP nomination, he would face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, who is considered one of the most endangered Democrats in the Senate.
  • Poll: Roy Moore Leads GOP Field for Alabama Senate

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore leads the field of potential Republicans vying for the chance to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D), a year and a half after Moore lost what was supposed to be an easy election in a deep-red state. A new poll shows Moore leading a still-evolving field of Alabama Republicans competing for the nomination. He is the top choice of 27 percent of Alabama Republican voters, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Inc. survey. The state’s three Republican members of Congress finish well behind Moore: Rep. Mo Brooks would take 18 percent, Rep....

    Dumped Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a bid to win back his old Senate seat in Alabama, a report said. Sessions, fired by President Trump a day after Republicans lost control of the House in the midterm elections, left the seat in 2017 when he was nominated to head up the Justice Department. But Sessions could run against Democrat Doug Jones, who won a special election in December 2017 to fill the seat and is up for re-election in 2020, Politico reported late Wednesday.

But the tone of his words didn't capture the rage that filled the White House residence, according to two sources with knowledge of the president's mood.
