Apparently the New York Times is reporting that White House officials are discussing trying to get the Alabama Governor to replace Roy Moore with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Via The Hill:
White House officials have reportedly spoken about the idea of replacing Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
According to a New York Times report, two White House officials spoke about the potential for Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) to appoint Sessions to the seat instead.
The White House officials said Sessions could then be appointed to his old Senate seat “when it becomes vacant,” according to the Times.
It is unclear how, if Moore is elected, the seat would become vacant.
How exactly would that work…unless Trump is still considering getting rid of Jeff Sessions? Isn’t that the implication, that they want to put Sessions back in the Senate?
