OUCH: President Trump Hits Jeff Sessions After Mediocre Performance in Alabama U.S. Senate Primary

Trump is pulling no punches.

President Donald Trump hammered his former Attorney General Jeff Sessions following his mediocre performance in the U.S. Senate primary for the state of Alabama.

Sessions will face a run-off election against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville after neither man achieved the 50 percent threshold needed to win the U.S. Senate nomination cleanly. Tuberville came in first place, receiving 32.2 percent or 235,461 votes, while Sessions came in a close second, receiving 31.1 percent or 227,492 votes.

President Trump wasted no time to gloat regarding Sessions, who he has routinely blasted for recusing himself from the Russian collusion probe while serving as AG.

Sessions attempted to portray himself as the pro-MAGA choice for the U.S. Senate seat. Despite being hammered by the President, Sessions continues to praise his former boss for “relentlessly and actually honoring the promises he made to the American people.”

“That’s why I still do support him,” he said.

“I’ll have a better relationship. I know what he campaigned on. I was with him at those rallies. I saw how people reacted to his strength and his vigor. I do think he’ll win again,” Sessions said regarding President Trump on Tuesday morning.

But Trump is apparently not as keen on mending fences, remembering how Sessions’ malfeasance as AG hamstrung his presidency for years.

“You look at what’s happening over at the Justice Department, now we have a great attorney general. Whereas before that, with Jeff Sessions, it was a disaster. Just a total disaster. He was an embarrassment to the great state of Alabama,” Trump said last year.

“And I put him there because he endorsed me, and he wanted it so badly. And I wish he’d never endorsed me,” he added.

“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!” Trump wrote in a tweet back in June 2018 when Sessions was still the AG.

Big League Politics has analyzed the race between Tuberville and Sessions, which could be quite a difficult choice for conservative Alabama voters:

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.

The runoff election between Sessions and Tuberville is expected to take place later this month.

Republican Voter Registration is Surging in Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the Runup to the November Election

This is even more important than polls.

The Republican Party is handily registering more voters than Democrats in the critical swing states of Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the advance of the 2020 presidential election, a strong sign for the GOP in the competitive states.

Republicans have registered more than 135,000 voters to their party than Democrats have since 2016, a handy lead in a state in which the margin of victory was 44,000. Pennsylvania is probably the most critical state in the 2020 election.

Pennsylvania Republicans Outpacing Democrats in New Voter Registration By 135,000

Republicans have registered a strong plurality of the new voters to register in Arizona since August, with 43% of these voters aligning as Republican. 26% have registered as Democrats, and 29% registered with no party affiliation or with another political party.

President Trump won the southwestern state by 4.5% in 2016, with rapid population growth and immigration turning Arizona into a purple state.

Republicans appear to be crushing Democrats in decisive fashion in the voter registration struggle in Florida, registering a whopping 41% more voters than the Democrat Party is in the state. The GOP registered 58,000 new Republican voters in August alone, a 91% increase when compared to August of 2016. Leading Democrats have even been sounding the alarm in the state, having lost it in 2016 with a far greater numerical voting lead then they’ll have this time.

The Joe Biden campaign has largely refrained from traditional political activism and door-knocking in the state, preferring to let their candidate speak through appearances on Sunday shows and softball interviews.

If the President wins these three states, he’s in an extremely strong position for victory, even if Biden wins Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. He’d need to hold North Carolina and Ohio to end up with 274 electoral college votes in this scenario.

These statistics are more pertinent than polls with highly questionable methodologies and flawed participant selection methods.
