On Saturday, President Trump tweeted out a reminder to Alabama voters that he’s supporting Republican candidate Tommy Tuberville for Senate in the runoff election today. Trump, who isn’t shy about his disappointment in his former AG Jeff Sessions, told his follower that Sessions is a “disaster who let us all down,” adding “We don’t want him back in Washington!”
The election results are in, and former Auburn head football coach Tommy Tuberville has won the Senate runoff against Jeff Sessions in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democrat Senator Doug Jones in November.
President Trump celebrated on Twitter with this tweet:
Wow, just called! @TTuberville – Tommy Tuberville WON big against Jeff Sessions. Will be a GREAT Senator for the incredible people of Alabama. @DougJones is a terrible Senator who is just a Super Liberal puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. Represents Alabama poorly. On to November 3rd.
The Montgomery Advisor reports – Tuberville, a first-time political candidate who had the backing of President Donald Trump, defeated former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was seeking to return to the seat he held for 20 years. The Associated Press called the race shortly before 8:19 p.m. As of 8:39 p.m. Tuberville had received 153,789 votes (63.1%) and Sessions had 89,761 votes (36.9%) in unofficial returns.
President Trump is having a fantastic night. He was also supporting former White House physician Admiral Ronny Jackson, who won in the congressional primary election in Texas.
President Trump sent his congratulations.
So much winning…
Expect the press to meltdown over Trump’s picks winning in both elections.
