Coach Tommy Tuberville, a candidate in the Alabama Republican runoff election for U.S. Senate, on Thursday unveiled a new campaign commercial that highlights President Donald Trump’s displeasure with Jeff Session’s tenure as his appointed attorney general.
“Throughout this campaign, Jeff Sessions has been running around and portraying himself as Donald Trump’s best friend, but this commercial uses the president’s own words to tell some hard truths,” Tuberville said. “The simple fact is that Jeff Sessions abandoned Donald Trump when he needed him most, and Alabama does not need to elect a cut-and-run senator.”
The 30-second ad, which will soon appear on social media outlets, digital platforms, and television stations across the state, can be viewed below, and its script reads:
