Jeff Sessions Challenges Tommy Tuberville to a Series of Debates and to ‘Stop Running Away’

Today, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions challenged Tommy Tuberville, his opponent for the Alabama Republican Senate nomination, to a series of five debates. “It is time for you to stop running away, and face me and the voters of Alabama,” Sessions wrote in a letter and a tweet.

It is time for you to stop running away, and face me and the voters of Alabama. I challenge you to a series of 5 debates before Alabama voters. You are either strong enough to debate, or weak & scared. I look forward to your response. http://jeffsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/JBSDebate-challenge-letter.pdf

If you won’t debate me now before AL voters, with TWO months to go until the election, there is no doubt that you would be eaten alive by @DougJones, @SpeakerPelosi, & @chuckschumer. What do you know of the radical left’s attack on the Constitution and the rule of law?

Tuberville had attempted to use his coaching experience to criticize Sessions by saying, “If coaching taught me anything, it’s that you don’t let the losing team dictate the game when you’re sitting on a lead.”

Sessions hit back by saying, “If watching you coach taught me anything, it’s that you’re no good at sitting on a lead.” He referenced Tuberville’s losing seasons which ended his tenures at Auburn and Cincinnati. He also wondered again if he was “too weak to debate.”

If watching you coach taught me anything @TTuberville, it’s that you’re no good at sitting on a lead. That’s why you finished 5-7 and 4-8 in your last seasons at Auburn and Cincinnati. If you are too weak to debate, you do not deserve to represent the people of Alabama.
