Jeff Sessions, the first U.S. senator to endorse candidate Donald Trump, a key member of the president’s cabinet and later the target of Trump’s trademark brand of ridicule, was back on friendly turf today.
Sessions spoke to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce at its annual conference, his first speaking appearance in Alabama since resigning as attorney general five weeks ago at Trump’s request. More than 600 people were on hand at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.
Sessions' resignation has sparked speculation about his political future, including whether he will try to reclaim in 2020 the Senate seat he gave up to serve in Trump’s cabinet.
