As the Republican primary runoff for nomination for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, football coach Tommy Tuberville is doubling down on a strategy of refusing to debate former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, leaving serious questions about his immigration policy positions unanswered.
Tuberville hopes to cruise to an easy victory on the basis of support from Donald Trump, who remains incensed at Sessions over a feud related to his former Attorney General’s recusal from Robert Mueller’s witch hunt Russia investigation. But Sessions has emphasized that the feud- now in the past- can’t be all that comes under consideration for Alabama’s Republican voters.
Tuberville steadfastly refuses to clarify some of his troubling statements related to immigration policy, including stating that the United States needs 400,000 Indian visa workers to provide labor for America’s corporations. Tuberville continues to rebuff attempts from Sessions to organize a debate to discuss actual policy before the July 14th runoff election, which will determine who will go on to face Democrat Doug Jones in November.
Sessions reiterated that Tuberville refuses to participate in a debate in a tweet responding to President Trump’s latest criticism of him, pointing out that Tuberville’s GOPe sympathies render him a suspect so-called supporter of the President’s ‘MAGA’ agenda.

In yet another demonstration of stark anachronism with Republican voters of today, Tuberville has even said that “we can’t worry about China” in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
In stark contrast with Tuberville, Jeff Sessions has what is almost certainly the strongest conservative track record on immigration policy of any former Senator or congressman. He’s almost single-handedly derailed several amnesty attempts, and most recently led the charge in calling for a federal immigration moratorium in response to the coronavirus recession that President Trump has partially implemented.
What does Tuberville, a political novice who frames himself as a great ally of President Trump, have to fear from a debate?
FINAL BETRAYAL: Mitt Romney Pushes Unconstitutional Impeachment Trial of Private Citizen Trump
Bitter and jealous to the end.
Mitt Romney endorsed a bogus impeachment trial of ex-President Donald Trump in the Senate in an appearance on Fox News Sunday, dismissing constitutional and legal questions about the charade and demanding an impeachment be railroaded through the chamber.
In vindictive fashion, Romney claimed that carrying out with sham impeachment proceedings was necessary for “unity.”
“And, you know, if we’re going to have unity in our country, I think it’s important to recognize the need for accountability, for truth and justice.”

The Senate trial of an ex-President that Romney desires isn’t even legal. The constitutional impeachment process is designed for a sitting President, not a former one who has since left the office. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is reportedly refusing to preside over the Senate proceedings, citing constitutional language that designates the Chief Justice as the presiding judge for the trial of a President, not a private citizen. Democrats to prevent President Trump from running for office again, an anti-Democratic plot the establishment Republican Senator is keen to sign off on.
Romney is said to be furious over President Trump’s reorientation of the Republican Party, transforming the GOP from an affluent pro-corporate globalist party to an America First party. Many Republicans still refuse to bend the knee to a populist vision, hanging onto the stale politics of times past.
Romney proposed that the GOP coronate several uninspiring establishment figures as new party leaders, including Charlie Baker, Larry Hogan, Marco Rubio and Ben Sasse. Emboldened by the second impeachment hoax, Romney seeks to restore establishment control of the Republican Party.
