Jeff Sessions

by Mitch McConnell
Philip Montgomery for TIME

From his days as a U.S. Attorney to his Senate service, Jeff Sessions has consistently fought to protect the public and the nation.

He has brought that principled leadership and integrity to the office of Attorney General. His commitment to the safety and security of Americans has fueled progress in the fight against gang violence, and guides his department’s opposition to dangerous sanctuary city policies. And his leadership has simultaneously brought greater toughness and greater compassion to our national struggle with opioids.

Don’t let his understated Southern charm deceive you. This dedicated leader is steadily restoring the rule of law and defending all Americans under the Constitution.

McConnell is the senior U.S. Senator from Kentucky and serves as Senate majority leader
