Rep. Pete Ses­sions (R) “faced a rauc­ous town hall Sat­urday as he sought to de­fend the GOP’s plan to re­peal and re­place Obama­care, among oth­er is­sues that have spawned fierce op­pos­i­tion un­der Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump. Ad­dress­ing over 2,000 people, Ses­sions was fre­quently drowned out by boos and angry out­bursts from the audi­ence. Many of his an­swers were not en­tirely aud­ible due to the crowd’s re­ac­tion as he began to speak.”

At one point Ses­sions told the crowd: “I know why you’re so frus­trated: You don’t know how to listen.”

“For Ses­sions, there are ad­di­tion­al polit­ic­al con­sid­er­a­tions. … Hil­lary Clin­ton won his dis­trict last year, and Demo­crats are already gear­ing up to try to un­seat him in 2018.” (Texas Tribune)
