Saturday morning, President Donald Trump sent a tweet encouraging Alabama voters to vote for Tommy Tuberville in the Senate runoff election Tuesday.
Trump, who endorsed Tuberville in March, called Tuberville “a winner who will never let you down.”
“Big Senate Race in Alabama on Tuesday. Vote for Tommy Tuberville, he is a winner who will never let you down. Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!”President Donald Trump
Jeff Sessions issued a statement late Saturday morning, denouncing Trump’s tweet as “juvenile.”
“I’ve taken the road less travelled. Not sought fame or fortune. My honor and integrity are far more important than these juvenile insults. Your scandal ridden candidate is too cowardly to debate. As you know, Alabama does not take orders from Washington.”Jeff Sessions
Roy Moore weighed in Saturday night, endorsing Sessions.
In part, Moore said Sessions “will also fight to defend religious liberty that is under attack across the nation.”
“The same Washington insiders who cheated Alabamians of their voice in the 2017 Senate race are at it again, working against a long time conservative and friend, Jeff Sessions. It’s time for Alabama to tell Washington once again that we do not take orders from them. Not only is Jeff Sessions the most qualified candidate in this race, but he will also fight to defend Religious Liberty that is under attack across the nation. Senator Jeff Sessions has my complete and total endorsement.”Roy Moore
The winner of Tuesday’s runoff election will face incumbent U.S. Senator Doug Jones in November.
