Trump’s Attacks on Sessions Become Part of U.S. Senate Primary

In less than three weeks, voters will go to the polls in the special primary election for U.S. Senate. In the last few days, the campaigning among Republicans has become something of a family feud. That’s because President Donald Trump has been publicly ridiculing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a popular native son of the Alabama GOP. We talk about this and other aspects of the Senate race with Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald.
Alabama is full of big news stories. From the removal of the Confederate battle flag, to gay marriage, to Birmingham's increase in the minimum wage. It's a lot for journalists to keep up with and a lot of great materials for columnists like AL.com and The Birmingham News' John Archibald. He discusses the city, county and state politics in forums large and small.
