If I were a Senator Jim DeMint, a Tom Coburn, a Sam Brownback … — one of the conservatives left in the Senate — I’d be asking Jeff Sessions to run for Republican Policy Committee. (And quickly, elections are Wednesday. I, for one, hate how soon these happen.) For the sake of good policy – and good conservative policy. This is important now more than ever with the GOP in the minority.
Those already running for leadership slots are in awkward positions, but behind the scenes I’d hope they’d nudge.
My sources tell me there is a real Sessions for RPC buzz. But he’s not likely to announce unless he knows he has a real shot at winning. He should have some shot at winning. If there’s any hope for any conservative policy being pushed through the next Senate, it would greatly help to have him chairing the minority’s Policy Committee.
