Ross sees silver lining in Sessions nomination

Alabama Senate Minority Leader Quinton T. Ross Jr. (D-Montgomery) said he looks forward to working with U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions when and if he is confirmed as the next U.S. Attorney General.

Since President-elect Donald Trump nominated Sen. Sessions as U.S. Attorney General, Sen. Ross has been in close personal contact with the nominee.

“We cannot ignore the fact that he is on the winning team. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on,” Sen. Ross said.

When Sen. Sessions faced his failed confirmation for a federal judgeship, Sen. Ross was a high school student in Pontiac, Mich. However, as a higher education administrator and an elected official, Sen. Ross has had a positive working relationship with the senator for the past 20 years.

“I have worked with Sen. Sessions on education policy and securing federal funding for our schools,” said Sen. Ross, who was born in Mobile, Ala. “Additionally, I have spent time with him at the Magic City Classic and at Heritage Barbershop in Montgomery. I know him personally and all of my encounters with him have been for the greater good of Alabama.”

Sen. Ross said he sees value in having a person in Washington who will be accessible to his constituents.

 “We’ve spoken about everything from Civil Rights to race relations and we agree that as Christian men our hearts and minds are focused on doing right by all people,” Sen. Ross said. “We both acknowledge that there are no perfect men, but we continue to work daily to do the right thing for all people.”

Sen. Ross believes that Sen. Sessions’ application of the law will not be biased.
