Sessions Fires Back at Trump Ahead of Tuesday Alabama Runoff

President Donald Trump has endorsed Senate primary candidate Tommy Tuberville over his own former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Alabama's Tuesday runoff election.

The primary was in March, but the runoff as delayed until summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because the Sabans (who may or may not have been second cousins, according to Lou Saban's widow - yes, it's complicated) do share a name, there's enough cover for Trump to say he meant to do that - especially if Tuberville wins Tuesday and goes on to defeat Democratic incumbent Doug Jones in the November general election, which will be held 25 days before the next Iron Bowl is supposed to be played.

Tuberville was quick to retweet Trump's post, thanking him for the endorsement.

"We don't want him back in Washington!" he added.

"He's really the expert as far as I'm concerned on borders, on so many things", Trump said of Sessions at the February 2016 rally where they announced the endorsement.

Tuberville is running against Sessions in the Republican primary runoff; the victor will face Sen.

If Sessions were to pull out a surprise win, it would not be the first embarrassment for Trump in Alabama, a deeply conservative state that Trump won by 28 points in the 2016 election.

Police described the man as about 170 centimetres (5.6 feet) tall, slim, with glasses, a goatee beard and a bald head. The man made the officers hand over their weapons before running away, "presumably" taking their firearms with him.

Sessions safely held the Senate seat for 20 years before resigning to lead Trump's Justice Department. "Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do", Sessions tweeted May 22. Saban split his two meetings against Tuberville-coached Auburn in 2007-08. My honor and integrity are far more important than these juvenile insults. "Your scandal ridden candidate is too cowardly to debate", Sessions tweeted, referring to charges of fraud against Tuberville involving a hedge fund he co-founded around 2009.

Trump was doing some last-minute campaigning for Tuberville on Monday, and he either made more fans among those of the Plains persuasion, or he made enemies among those on the Tide side - or both, let's be honest - with something he said. The seat was occupied by Sessions from 1997 until 2017, when he left to become Trump's attorney general.

Mr. Sessions, whom all polls show trailing Mr. Tuberville, has sought to define the latter with unproven record, warning GOP primary voters of happened three years ago when former state supreme court justice Roy Moore was buried under allegations of sexual misconduct with a young woman decades ago. Tuberville's campaign told The New York Times that his involvement in the hedge fund was a mistake that he has paid for, and has defended Tuberville's handling of the player's case.

Jack Campbell, a political consultant and talk radio host who supports Tuberville, said Trump's disavowal of Sessions has become the chief issue of the campaign.

His campaign declined to make Tuberville available for an interview or disclose any of his appearances in the week leading up to the primary.

Sessions is banking on his long history with voters. Moseley said he plans to vote for Sessions.

"That stuck out to me as someone who cares", Mosely said.
