Mobile, Ala. — Florida Man Tommy Tuberville is ducking a debate with Jeff Sessions.
As WKRG TV reported on Monday, Tuberville has backed out of a debate with Sessions.
Sessions issued this statement on Tuesday morning in response to Tuberville’s tucking-tail-and-running:
“Tommy Tuberville is afraid to debate because he’s scared of being found out and exposed. But let me say this — no one will prevail in this Senate race without being vetted. Especially Florida Man Tommy Tuberville. In his 65 years, he has never advocated for any conservative political principle or made any contribution to a conservative candidate.
“Tommy Tuberville does not know Alabama. He simply does not understand the big issues that our state and nation face. Indeed, his own words reveal his support for amnesty and his direct opposition to President Trump’s use of tariffs to crack down on China. He has good reason to run scared from a debate with me.
“I will debate him anywhere in Alabama. If it would make him more comfortable, I will debate him in his home state of Florida.
“Does Tommy think the Republican nominee will get a free pass from Doug Jones and his out-of-state millions? Alabama needs a Senator who won’t back down.
“It’s time Tommy Tuberville quit hiding behind his TV ads — the people of Alabama deserve to know where he stands on the issues.”
