Alabama AG Luther Strange Named To Fill Sessions’ Senate Vacancy

posted on February 10, 2017

Following the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions as U.S. attorney general, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has appointed state Attorney General Luther Strange to fill the vacancy in the U.S. Senate.

“Senator Sessions' commitment to public service is nearly unparalleled in Alabama history, and his departure from the Senate leaves tremendous shoes to fill,” Strange said. “I pledge to the people of Alabama to continue the same level of leadership as Jeff Sessions in consistently fighting to protect and advance the conservative values we all care about.”

Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said Strange is a longtime supporter of the Second Amendment with a strong commitment to the right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms. “I would like to congratulate Luther Strange on his appointment to the United States Senate,” Cox said. “The people of Alabama are fortunate to have a senator who will continue Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ legacy as a steadfast champion of freedom.”
