Governor Looking to Appoint Sessions' Replacement

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Governor Robert Bentley is asking the Alabama Republican Executive Committee to suggest who should replace U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions. The governor sent a request to the 400-plus committee members seeking their input on who he should appoint to fill Sessions' seat. President-elect Donald Trump has tapped Sessions to be his Attorney General. The governor asked committee members to submit names by December 1st. A spokeswoman for Bentley says the governor's legal office is researching if an appointed senator would have to run in a quickly called special election, or run in 2018.
