PBS NewsHour reports:
Jeff Sessions is hoping to regain the seat he held for 20 years before stepping down in 2017 to serve as President Donald Trump’s attorney general, a position he was pushed out of 18 months later.
In the Republican runoff, he’s facing former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who finished 2 points ahead of Sessions in the March 3 primary that triggered this runoff, which has been pushed back more than three months because of the pandemic.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted, “Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!” Sessions dismissed Trump’s comments as “juvenile insults” in his own tweet, tellingTrump that “Alabama does not take orders from Washington.”

Another Q proof! Q said to Trust Jeff Sessions even though Trump endorsed his opponent. Today Jeff Sessions took a family picture in which his daughter had a sign saying “#TrustSessions” which was the exact wording of Q. In the post that said Trust Sessions, Q also said.. https://t.co/Gfg4sDRJnJ

This is Jeff Sessions actively begging QAnon voters to support him.#TrustSessions is a longtime QAnon hashtag, operating under the theory that the Trump/Sessions feud is disinformation to throw the baby-eating Deep State off the trail.
The entire party is beyond saving. https://t.co/Lu7UQ3an34
