An Alabama state senator has offered praise to Sen. Jeff Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump's pick for attorney general.

Sen. Quinton Ross, who leads the Democratic minority in the state Senate, said he expects Sessions — who has represented Alabama in the U.S. Senate since 1997 — to rule the Department of Justice with a fair hand if his nomination is approved.

"I have worked with Sen. Sessions on education policy and securing federal funding for our schools," Ross said, according to AL.com. "Additionally, I have spent time with him at the Magic City Classic and at Heritage Barbershop in Montgomery. I know him personally and all of my encounters with him have been for the greater good of Alabama."

Ross added that he has spoken with Sessions since Trump nominated him on Nov. 18.

"We've spoken about everything from Civil Rights to race relations and we agree that as Christian men our hearts and minds are focused on doing right by all people," Ross said.

"We both acknowledge that there are no perfect men, but we continue to work daily to do the right thing for all people."

Ross has served in the Alabama statehouse since 2002.
