President Donald Trump took to his Twitter account Tuesday night to make his pick for Alabama’s next U.S. senator.
He’s picking former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville over Jeff Sessions, a former Alabama senator and Trump’s former attorney general.
“He is a real leader who will never let MAGA/KAG or our country down!,” Trump said. “Coach Tommy Tuberville, a winner, has my complete and total endorsement.”
Tuberville and Sessions face each other in a March 31 Republican party runoff.
The winner will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Doug Jones in November.
