Jeff Sessions Will Advance to Alabama Runoff Against Tommy Tuberville

The runoff could prove to have policy implications for the Republican Party on immigration.

Jeff Sessions will face off against college football coach Tommy Tuberville in a runoff election at the end of the month for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama.

Returns of the initial primary on Tuesday night show Sessions narrowly leading Tuberville. Under Alabama’s election processes, a candidate needs more than 50% of the initial primary vote to avoid an additional runoff election held between the two leading candidates.

With almost 50% reporting, Sessions is neck and neck with Tuberville at around 35% of the vote.

A runoff election won’t include several other Republican candidates who ran for the Senate seat. Congressman Bradley Byrne took almost a quarter of the vote in the initial primary, and his supporters could prove crucial to whichever candidate hopes to win the March 31st runoff election.

Immigration policy has proven to be a consistent theme in the heated Senate race. Sessions, a longtime US Senator who departed from the seat he’s currently running for to serve as Donald Trump’s Attorney General, has lambasted Tuberville for a history of confusing remarks appearing to endorse pro-big business amnesty and open borders immigration policy. Tuberville has hired campaign consultants with a proven track record of lobbying for amnesty, and he’s even gone so far as to say that the United States “needs” more than 100,000 illegal immigrants entering the country every month to provide cheap labor.

The race could prove to be an indicator of the Republican Party’s views on immigration, at least in the southern state. Sessions has consistently led efforts to block amnesty and globalist cheap labor immigration policy throughout his career as a Senator and Attorney General.

Sessions has sought to explain his falling out with President Donald Trump during his tenure as Attorney General to Alabama voters, reminding the electorate that he’s consistently remained a strong Trump supporter and emphasizing that he hopes to repair his relationship with the President upon returning to his old Senate seat. Sessions was the first Republican Senator and major American political figure to endorse Trump for President, a feather in his cap he’s been keen to emphasize throughout his campaign.

Idaho Governor Signs Law Banning Transgender People From Changing Their Birth Certificates

A rare victory for sanity in the state legislature.

Published

on

Idaho Governor Brad Little (R) signed a law on Monday that bans transgender individuals from altering their birth certificate to conform with their severe mental illness.

Far-left activists are planning to file lawsuits in an attempt to violate the will of the people and get this common-sense measure overturned.

“Lambda Legal already sued the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare over birth certificates and won in 2018, and we’ll see the state back in federal court again,” said Lambda Legal attorney Kara Ingelhart to Newsweek.

“The policy was unconstitutional two years ago, and it is still unconstitutional today,” she added.

However, with Supreme Court now bolstered with conservative jurists, the courts may correct the legal precedent in the name of sanity.

In addition to signing this measure into law, Gov. Little also signed legislation that will ban transgender “women” from participating with birth women in sporting events at public school. There is a landmark lawsuit that has been filed in the state of Connecticut that argues allowing birth men in sporting events with birth women is a federal civil rights violation.

“As we look at the culture we’re in right now, to have opportunities taken away from girls and women by boys and men, it’s not right. It’s absolutely not right,” said Idaho State Representative Barbara Ehardt, who was the primary sponsor of the bill.

Big League Politics has reported extensively on the strides that the state of Idaho is making against the LGBT agenda:

The Idaho state house has approved a bill that would ban transgender individuals from changing their sex on birth certificates, in a rebuke of LGBT insanity.

House Bill 509 maintains that “there is a compelling interest in maintaining accurate, quantitative, biology-based material facts on Idaho certificates of birth that provide material facts fundamental to the performance of government functions that secure the public health and safety.”

The bill also states that “biological sex is an objectively defined category that has obvious, immutable, and distinguishable characteristics” that are God’s design and cannot be changed by man.

Republican Rep. Julianne Young introduced the legislation in an attempt to stop the LGBT war against science and reality.

“It is better to be correct than politically correct where human lives are concerned,” Young said to the Idaho Statesman.

Idaho is the latest in a wave of states that are pushing back against LGBT tyranny that is jeopardizing the rule of law and turning society upside down.
