Why does Florida Man Tommy Tuberville refuse to debate Jeff Sessions???
Jeff Sessions issued a letter earlier this week, challenging Tuberville to a series of 5 debates, one for each major media market in the state.
“It’s time for Tommy Tuberville to quit running scared and hiding behind his TV ads—the people of Alabama deserve to know where he stands on the issues. I will debate him anywhere in Alabama. If it would make him more comfortable, I will debate him in his home state of Florida,” Sessions said.
During the primary, both Tommy Tuberville and Jeff Sessions pledged to hold a debate if there were a runoff—Jeff Sessions is ready and waiting. What about Tommy Tuberville?
The Sessions campaign is releasing this video today:
