Tommy Tuberville asserts ‘God sent us Donald Trump’ in first statewide radio ad


Former Auburn University football coach and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville on Monday debuted his campaign’s first statewide radio ad

Currently airing on stations across Alabama, the ad endeavors to inform voters about Tuberville’s support for President Donald Trump, his fight against career politicians, and the deeply-held conservative principles that guide both his life and his campaign.

“Speaking directly to the voters about the issues that motivate us is the core of our strategy, and the media campaign we kick off today will help us accomplish that goal,” Tuberville said. “It is time for our state to send a political outsider to the U.S. Senate so we can stand with President Trump and give Washington, D.C. a good dose of our conservative Alabama values.”

Tuberville faces former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, state Rep. Arnold Mooney, businessman Stanley Adair and Ruth Page Nelson in the crowded Republican primary on March 3, 2020.
