Sessions, who was the first senator to endorse Trump's campaign, suffered a huge falling out with the president over his decision to recuse himself from the federal probe into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election. Trump has said naming Sessions as attorney general was the "biggest mistake" of his presidency, and he has called his leadership of the Justice Department "a total joke."

Bradley Byrne, who said he would not back out if the former attorney general joined the race, noted that the president would be “very vocal against him.”In recent weeks, Sessions has actively weighed a comeback bid for the seat he held for two decades, speaking with allies and calling major donors and fundraisers in the state to gauge his level of support ahead of the Nov. 8 filing deadline.

Sessions resigned at Trump's request exactly one year ago.

"As everyone knows, President Trump and I have had our ups and downs. But here's the important part: the President is doing great work for America," he said. "When President Trump took on Washington, only one Senator out of a hundred had the courage to stand with him: me. I was the first to support President Trump. I was his strongest advocate. I still am. We must make America great again."

He is expected to make a formal announcement on Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight later Thursday.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce Thursday a campaign for his old US Senate seat from Alabama, according to a GOP official familiar with the plan, a decision that could roil the Republican primary and provide the ultimate test of President Donald Trump's sway over his supporters.

Sessions' Senate announcement comes the night before the deadline to file in the hyper-competitive Republican race, which already includes former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct as he lost to Democrat Doug Jones in the 2017 special election to replace Sessions.

Tuberville released a digital ad Thursday that started with Trump saying the one thing he'd like to do over would be naming Sessions his attorney general. Grit PAC, a political action committee supporting Tuberville's candidacy, also released a 15-second online ad calling Sessions a "traitor."

Sessions' participation comes despite his being told behind the scenes and publicly by allies of the president that Trump would campaign against him in the crowded Republican primary field.

"Jeff Sessions returning to the Senate is a terrible idea," Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida tweeted Wednesday.

Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama, however, told reporters on Thursday that he'd "absolutely" endorse his former colleague if he got into the race.

"Jeff Sessions is a friend. I worked with him every day up here for 20 years. He's a man of integrity. Of course, he'll have to run his own race, and you know that's up to the people of Alabama, but I believe he'll be a formidable candidate," Shelby said.
