Jeff Sessions Slams Alabama Senate Runoff Opponent Tuberville as ‘Empty Suit’ in Last-Ditch Appeal to Voters

Victor Garcia, Fox News, July 7, 2020

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions made his final case to Alabama Republican voters on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday, blasting his Senate runoff opponent Tommy Tuberville as an “empty suit.”


The runoff between Sessions and Tuberville, the former Auburn football coach who has been endorsed by President Trump, will take place July 14, with both men seeking the Senate seat Sessions held before becoming Attorney General in 2017. The seat was briefly held by Republican Luther Strange before Democrat Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore in a special election that December.

Polls have show Sessions well behind for much of the runoff campaign. The most recent poll, taken in late May by a group that consults for the Sessions campaign, had him trailing Tuberville by six percentage points.
