Attorney General Jeff Sessions won't say who he voted for in the Alabama special election on Tuesday to fill the Senate seat he vacated to join President Trump's Cabinet.
“I voted absentee, yes, and I value the sanctity of the ballot,” Sessions told reporters, according to Politico.
Sessions made the remarks during a press conference with the new Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on threats posed by the MS-13 gang.
“I would say the people of Alabama are good and decent, wonderful people. I was proud to serve them in the Senate," the former Alabama senator added. "They’ll make the right decision."
More than half a dozen women have accused Roy Moore, the GOP candidate for the Alabama senate race, of pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. The accusations against the former Alabama judge have put a strain on the Republican party.
Multiple Republican senators had pressured Moore to drop out amid the controversy.
Meanwhile, President Trump has openly endorsed his campaign.
