Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly contemplating a return to the Senate after President Trump fired him on Wednesday.
A source close to Sessions told CNN that the country’s former top law enforcement official was isn’t ruling out running for his old seat in 2020 against Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala. Jones replaced Sessions in the Senate via a fierce special election last year against Republican candidate Roy Moore, who was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. Despite the claims, Moore had been expected to win, given Alabama being a traditionally red state.

Former Sen. Luther Strange, the Alabama Republican who temporarily filled Sessions’ spot in the Senate when he was promoted to Trump’s Cabinet, on Wednesday tweeted his support of such a move hours before Sessions’ firing was made public.
