Trump endorses Jeff Sessions' rival in Alabama race

11 March 2020

President Donald Trump has endorsed the rival of his former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a runoff race for the Republican Alabama Senate nomination.

The president's endorsement of Tommy Tuberville, a former football coach, is an embarrassing blow for Mr Sessions.

Mr Sessions, who previously held the senate seat, was forced to leave the attorney general post in 2018 when his relationship with Mr Trump soured.

Mr Trump described Mr Tuberville as a "terrific" head coach and "a REAL LEADER".

2. Yeah, but this is payback

For Sessions recusing himself from part of the Russia investigation when he was AG.

3. I Can't Be the Only One Reading This to Mean...

...that Doug Jones has a shot at holding his seat after all.

We need to send that guy some money.

4. Truly rich. But if Sessions won and IF Trump could possibly win, Sessions would lick Trump's shoes.
