Tommy Tuberville (R), the former head football coach of Alabama’s Auburn University, announced over the weekend that he will seek the Republican US Senate nomination. Already in the race is Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Mobile). Others, such as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and even possibly 2017 special election nominee Roy Moore (R), the former state Supreme Court Chief Justice, are also reportedly considering the race.
The eventual Republican nominee then challenges Sen. Doug Jones (D), who is filling former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) unexpired term after winning the 2017 special election. This race is going to be the top Republican conversion target next year, and very likely a must-win campaign for the GOP to maintain their Senate majority.
