Republican Tommy Tuberville wins Alabama Senate seat

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Former college football head coach Tommy Tuberville has won a Senate seat in Alabama. The Republican defeated incumbent Democratic Senator Doug Jones on Tuesday. 

The Associated Press has declared Tuberville as the winner. The Alabama voters sent the supporter of Donald Trump to Washington, D.C.

This helps the Republicans, who are hoping to remain control of the Senate. The Democrats have already won control of the House of Representatives.

Tuberville flipped the seat that Jones won in late 2017. 

“I want to thank President Donald Trump,” Tuberville said at his victory party Tuesday. “He is without a doubt in my lifetime the guy that’s done more for the United States of America than any president that I’ve ever been around.”

With the win, Tuberville said that he will donate his salary to Alabama veterans.

“My Father landed at Normandy on D-Day when he was 18…drove a tank across Europe earning 5 Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart,” Tuberville said in a Instagram post. “He died of a heart attack at 53 on active duty during a training mission. He was my Hero.

“There is nothing more important than honoring America’s Heroes and taking care of our Veterans when they return home.”

The 66-year-old also defeated former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in July to win this opportunity to face Jones.
