The former great Auburn University football head coach Tommy Tuberville announced his run for Alabama Senate seat as a Republican in 2020. He even announced he is a Trump supporter as well.
Tuberville was the Auburn head coach for ten years and brought them to an undefeated 13-0 record.
Tuberville tweeted, “After more than a year of listening to Alabama’s citizens, I have heard your concerns and hopes for a better tomorrow. I am humbled to announce the next step — I will be a @GOP candidate for US Senate. I invite you to join my team. http://www.tommyforsenate.com #TeamTommy #ALSen #MAGA”
Tuberville plans to unseat Alabama Democrat Senator Doug Jones in 2020. Jones was able to win the 2017 special election against Roy Moore. This was only due to the Roy Moore scandal that broke late in the election.
