MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - After Jeff Sessions was forced out as attorney general, some, including former Sen. Luther Strange, called on Sessions to run for his former job.
Strange tweeted, "Jeff Sessions for Senate in 2020!"
Sessions vacated his seat in the Senate after President Trump picked him to be attorney general. Democrat Doug Jones won the seat in a special election in 2017.
Rep. Bradley Byrne recently expressed interest in running against Jones. FOX10 News asked him whether or not those plans will change should Sessions want his old job back.
The congressman said, "I've put so much time in this I feel the need to keep going, and I've felt an enormous amount of encouragement and for no other reason I look to the people who have been so encouraging to continue doing what I'm doing and we've got a lot more ground to cover."
Byrne said he anticipates that he will be sitting down with Sessions in a week weeks for "a discussion."
