Trump candidate wins GOP Senate primary in Alabama

Tommy Tuberville, a former football coach from Auburn University, beat former senator and former attorney general Jeff Sessions in the Alabama GOP Senate primary on Tuesday.

President Trump publicly opposed his former attorney general’s return to Washington D.C., saying he didn’t want him back in Washington. He openly campaigned for Tuberville:

Jeff Sessions earned the president’s disrespect when — as attorney general — he recused himself from overseeing the Russian collusion investigation early in the Trump administration. As the investigation wore on and dragged the president and the country down, it became apparent that Sessions could have helped the president and the country avoid the divisive and destructive effects of an investigation that, after over two years, discovered no criminal conduct or collusion. President Trump fired Sessions in November 2018 and eventually replaced him with current AG William Barr.

Sessions actively appealed for President Trump’s support in his bid for his old Senate seat, but the president would have none of it. He expressed his disappointment with Sessions’ naivete about the “deep state” saying that Sessions “had no clue” and promised that Tuberville would do a better job. The president even promised Tuberville direct access in a campaign ad.

Tuberville’s win is a win for President Trump. He celebrated on Twitter:

Tuberville will face Democrat Doug Jones in November.

War Eagle but I’m a Roll Tide who voted for Tommy because he was a good coach and I can see he will be a great Senate member for the whole State of Alabama.

Don’t be too tough on old Sessions. Like too many of his republican pals in the Senate and the House, he’s been conditioned over the year like Pavlov’s dog, to take his orders from the democrats. So when the democrats told him to recuse himself from what turned out to be the Mueller witch hunt, he immediately complied. Roll over, play dead, sit, shake hands…. good doggie.

Just like Mueller took his orders from Wiseman, as did Rosenstein.

I’m jumping with joy that sessions for beat afer recusing himself when our president needed him the most. Sessions is no better than sorry ass communist. Good riddance! There’s another third of the Republican party that need to be removed because they are only there for a paycheck and they vote in favor of the communists. Drain the swamp, Donald!!!
