Gov. Ivey moves election for Sessions' Senate seat to this year

Republican Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama has moved up the date of the special election to fill the state's Senate seat by more than a year.

When Sessions was confirmed as USA attorney general on February 8, it created a vacancy that Bentley, by law, had a right to fill.

The seat is now held by appointee Luther Strange, Alabama's former attorney general.

At the same time, its overall design is punctuated by large side mirrors, 20-inch wheels, and a relatively slim greenhouse. The Concept A is the latest exercise in Mercedes design boss Gorden Wagener's "Sensual Purity" design language.

The new date pleased Alabama Auditor Jim Zeigler, a Republican who filed suit against Bentley last month seeking to force a quicker special election. A runoff election is scheduled for September 26, and the general election will take place on December 12.

State Rep. Ed Henry, R-Hartselle, said today he will seek the U.S. Senate seat that belonged to Jeff Sessions and is now filled by interim Sen. Bentley allegedly had an extramarital affair with a former staffer and attempted to use the state's resources to hide the affair.

Zeigler told Reuters he considered Bentley's appointment of odd "questionable".

"Senator Strange is a fighter who is helping President Trump and Attorney General Sessions accomplish the reforms that Americans voted for last November, and we are fully committed to supporting him in the upcoming special election".

"This is not a hastily-made decision", she said.

The seat was vacated when President Donald Trump appointed Sessions to U.S. Attorney General. "The people of Alabama have a right to decide who represents this state and now they will have that opportunity".
