Prominent Alabama Democrat Susan Cobb gives Sen. Sessions stamp of approval

Democrat and Former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Susan Bell Cobb in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) endorsed President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney-General Nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).

The Montgomery Advertiser has the details:

In her letter, Cobb references the 1994 election, when she was the Democratic candidate for the appellate court and Sessions was running for Alabama Attorney General.

“We were then as we are now, members of different parties, but always willing to assist each other as we attempted to constantly do the right thing for the people of our beloved state,” Cobb wrote.

On issues, she applauded Sessions work in Congress to reduce the backlogs in state forensics labs, and supporting alternative programs to sentence non-violent drug offenders with something other than prison time.

Sen. Sessions has earned widespread appeal from Republicans and Democrats alike and deserves a speedy confirmation process. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge lawmakers to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions to the role of U.S. attorney general!
