Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is reportedly about to officially put his support behind Donald Trump.
Sen. Sessions serves as the chairman of two Senate subcommittees: Immigration and the National Interest, and Strategic Forces. Among other things, he’s been outspoken about our nation’s current immigration policies and instrumental in shining a light on immigration lapses that endanger Americans.
SEN. SESSIONS TO ENDORSE TRUMP
Sun Feb 28 2016 16:36:22 ET
The conservative soul of the US Senate, Jeff Sessions, will endorse Trump this evening at a Huntsville, Alabama rally…
This news will be delivered as a suprise to all 25k Alabamians in attendance at the Trump rally and all participating news media….
Many had expected Sen. Sessions to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz, so no doubt this will be seen as a huge blow to the Texas senator.
One of the many criticisms naysayers have of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is that he is not a “true conservative.” Will the endorsement of Sen. Sessions help alleviate those concerns and help Trump win over more of the GOP base? Or will it hurt Sessions as some conservatives question his choice?
Both viewpoints are already out in full force on Twitter, just moments after news of the endorsement began to spread.
You can watch the live stream of the event where Sessions’ endorsement is expected here:
