President Trump Sends Message To Tommy Tuberville After He Won Alabama GOP Primary (TWEET)
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump endorsed former college football head coach Tommy Tuberville in the runoff vote for the Alabama Republican primary.
As it would turn out, the former Auburn head coach not only lined up against Jeff Sessions, he was declared the winner of the runoff election. The longtime college football coach will run against Senator Doug Jones.
Not long after winning the election, Tuberville received a message from the president.
“Wow, just called! Tommy Tuberville WON big against Jeff Sessions. Will be a GREAT Senator for the incredible people of Alabama. Doug Jones is a terrible Senator who is just a Super Liberal puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. Represents Alabama poorly. On to November 3rd,” Trump said.
The 65-year-old Tuberville was Auburn’s head coach from 1999-2008. He won the SEC in 2004 and led the Tigers to five SEC West Division championships.
