BOOM! Trump SLAMS Jeff Sessions After Second Place Finish to Former Football Coach
The race for the Alabama Senate is off to a crazy start so far.
You’ll remember that Democrat Doug Jones who beat out Judge Roy Moore last year after false accusations against Moore of sexual misconduct were put out, as well as Doug Jones rigging the election. Still nothing was done about it and Jones is still in office.
That should all change after the election in November and it looks like the option for Republican is still up in the air as the vote was so close that there is no definitive winner yet.
The who Republicans running are former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Auburn Head Coach Tommy Tuberville.
Tuberville actually won with the most votes, but the margin was small enough that there must now be a runoff.
For those unfamiliar with what a runoff is, it’s another vote that will be had between the two candidates because neither of them won the majority vote.
According to CBS Sports,
In a headline that somehow seems completely normal for 2020, former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville will face ex-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was essentially fired by President Donald Trump, in a runoff for Sessions’ old U.S. Senate seat.
The two Republicans were squaring off during yesterday’s Super Tuesday primary voting. As of Wednesday afternoon, AL.com reports that almost all precincts are reporting that Tuberville owns about 32 percent of the vote with Sessions holding about 31 percent. The difference between the two GOP candidates is less than 10,000 votes.
As such, a runoff will take place on March 31 because no candidate won the majority of votes. The winner of the runoff will face incumbent Democrat Doug Jones in November during the general election. Former Alabama politician Roy Moore, who lost to Jones in 2017 amid multiple sexual misconduct allegations, finished fourth in Tuesday’s voting.
But President Trump “This is what happens to someone who loyally gets appointed Attorney General of the United States & then doesn’t have the wisdom or courage to stare down & end the phony Russia Witch Hunt. Recuses himself on FIRST DAY in office, and the Mueller Scam begins!”
