GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump received his first endorsement by a U.S. senator, receiving a nod from Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions on Sunday.
"I am pleased to endorse Donald Trump for president," Sessions told a crowd of some 32,000 people at a Trump rally in Hunstville, Alabama.
"I told Donald Trump, this isn't a campaign, this a movement," the Tea Party Republican told the crowd as the candidates prepare to head into the Super Tuesday primary elections. "I believe that the movement is afoot -- that must not fade away. It has the potential to have the American people's voices heard for a change."
Last week, Trump also garnered the endorsements of his former presidential race rival New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and U.S. Reps. Chris Collins of New York and California's Duncan Hunter.
