This afternoon, Jeff Sessions announced his latest television ad called “FLORIDA MAN.” The ad will begin running today in Alabama.
Jon Jones, campaign manager for Jeff Sessions for U.S. Senate said, “Alabama will not give away our voice in the U.S. Senate to a person who grew up in Arkansas, retired in Florida, and merely stopped here for a few years. In fact, just last year, he admitted ‘Yes, I am not an everyday resident of Alabama.’ Further, he flatly stated twice, ‘I am a carpetbagger.’ Those are his words.”
“Florida Phony Tommy Tuberville is an out-of-state, out-of-work football coach who doesn’t know or understand Alabama, or the issues Alabamians care about. Let’s be honest – Tommy Tuberville is a big talking phony. He is playing a character on TV, but that’s not who he is. He’s the guy who said he would only leave Ole Miss in a pine box,” Jones said.
“Tommy Tuberville always puts himself first. He gets fired from or quits every job. In the first 65 years of his life, Tuberville never lifted a finger in the battle for conservative ideals. He never helped President Trump, he never said a kind word about President Trump, he never even gave a single penny of his millions to help President Trump get elected. But now that he wants our vote, he is all about Trump. How convenient. Tommy Tuberville is a Florida Phony who is all about himself and he is just using President Trump for his own purposes,” Jones concluded.

TUBERVILLE: Santa Rosa Beach, Florida….
ANNC: Not Alabama?
TUBERVILLE: I’m gonna be the next U.S. Senator from the state of Alabama.
