Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, prefers ex-Rep. Charles Bass (N.H.) in his comeback campaign for a seat that at least two more conservative Republicans are seeking.

Sessions’ leadership organization, People for Enterprise, Trade and Economic Growth (PETE) PAC gave Bass’ exploratory campaign a $2,500 contribution on Nov. 19, according to a filing it made Wednesday to the Federal Election Commission.

Sessions praised Bass in a September e-mail he sent to political supporters.
