Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D. OH) in support of his colleague, U.S. Senator Doug Jones’ (D. AL) re-election campaign:
Former Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce that he will challenge Alabama Sen. Doug Jones’ seat in 2020.
The only way we’ll be able to advance progressive legislation that honors the Dignity of Work is if we flip the Senate next year. And the only way we’ll be able to flip the Senate is if we hold each and every Democrat-held seat that’s up.
Our country needs leaders who value unity. We need leaders who will work together to get things done like protecting access to health care, ensuring social justice, and safeguarding equality for all. That’s Doug.
I can tell you that it’s not Jeff Sessions.
I was the first senator to come out against Sessions’ nomination as attorney general because I was deeply concerned by his record on civil rights and his ability to ensure justice is done. His record proved we were exactly right to be afraid, and that’s why we can’t afford for him to return to the Senate.
