Rep. Brooks offers to drop out of Alabama Senate race to clear way for Sessions
Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, who is in danger of missing a GOP primary runoff in Alabama's Senate race, has offered to drop out of the contest to make way for under-fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reclaim his old seat in Congress' upper chamber.
Brooks' proposal would involve all nine candidates in the race, including Sen. Luther Strange and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, dropping out of the contest. The Alabama GOP would then be able to appoint Sessions as their nominee and run him in the general election.
