BOOM! Trump SLAMS Jeff Sessions After Second Place Finish to Former Football Coach

The race for the Senate in Alabama is off to an interesting start so far.

You may recall that in 2018, Democrat Doug Jones beat out Judge Roy Moore. It was a very dishonest election which was accompanied by false accusations against Roy Moore of sexual misconduct and Doug Jones was proven to have cheated in the election.

It still blows my mind how he's still in the Senate.

However, this will all change come November when a Republican regains that seat. But right now we don't know which Republican it will be.

Former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Auburn Head Coach Tommy Tuberville are the two vying for the nomination to run against Sen. Jones.

Tuberville actually won with the most votes, but the margin was small enough that there must now be a runoff.

If you're not familiar with what a runoff is, it's just another vote that will take place to decide between the two candidates since 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.

President Trump tweeted "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!"
