Sessions unopposed in primary or general election

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) The primary season just ended and the general election campaign now unfolding looks the same to Sen. Jeff Sessions. The Alabama Republican is a tea party favorite, a strong foe of immigration legislation and the only Republican senator running in 2014 without a ballot opponent of any stripe.

Sessions has no shortage of detractors, and his good political fortune is a blend of luck and design.

The Democratic party in the state is weak. And he is an ally of the tea party.

If Republicans win Senate control this fall, he is likely to be chairman of the Senate Budget Committee and lead an assault on federal deficits. If so, he says the budget he writes will balance in ten years at the most, and be a Republican consensus plan.
