Senate candidates Mo Brooks and Mike Durant claim loyalty to former President Donald Trump. However, when it comes to disgraced former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the pair breaks with Trump, praising his arch-nemesis.
Both Brooks and Durant say Sessions was correct in recusing himself from the Russia investigation, a direct contradiction to the former president’s thinking.
“He was the biggest problem,” Trump remarked in 2020. “I mean, look Jeff Sessions put people in place that were a disaster.”
Brooks, however, apparently publicly disagrees with Trump on Sessions to this day.
Brooks on Monday evening spoke to a local Republican group in Mobile, where he was asked by a College Republican from the University of South Alabama if he thinks Sessions will endorse him in the 2022 U.S. Senate race.
