The Alabama Republican Senate Runoff election has been called for Trump-endorsed Tommy Tuberville over Jeff Sessions.

It wasn’t close.

At this writing, with 42% reporting, Tuberville was ahead by 25 points.

Tommy Tuberville 125,030 62.7%
Jeff Sessions 74,390 37.3

Hopefully there aren’t any shoes to drop on Tuberville.

Unless there is a scandal, he should easily beat Doug Jones, for a Republican pick-up. That will make it more difficult, but not impossible, for Democrats to retake the Senate.

It’s the end of Jeff Sessions’ political career.

I know there’s a lot of hostility towards him for the way he handled what ended up being Mueller-gate, but he was solid on so many of the issues and fought a good fight for decades. He also was the first Republican Senator to endorse Trump at a time the establishment was still laughing.
