‘Traitor Jeff’ — New Alabama Senate ad blasts Sessions over Trump

Yellowhammer News on Thursday obtained the first digital ad by GRIT PAC, an independent expenditure committee supporting former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville for U.S. Senate.

The ad is just in time for former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions’ entrance into Alabama’s 2020 GOP Senate primary.

Entitled, “Dixie,” the 15-second video ad features a clip of President Donald J. Trump speaking about Sessions’ time as U.S. attorney general. The ad will be rolled out on social media and other digital platforms and target likely Republican primary voters in the Birmingham media market starting on Thursday.

In a statement, GRIT PAC chairman Stan McDonald said, “As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions failed President Trump by recusing himself from the Russian inquiry and completely let President Trump, conservatives, and the state of Alabama down.”

“His entry into the race is a cooperative effort between himself and the swamp,” he continued. “President Trump has kicked Sessions off of the team and he doesn’t want him back. We cannot trust him to support the America First agenda. There’s only one candidate who will faithfully serve President Trump and deliver results for Alabama, and that’s Coach Tuberville.”

Tuberville nor his own campaign have involvement in GRIT PAC.

Other GOP candidates who have qualified in the race are Congressman Bradley Byrne (AL-01), former Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, Secretary of State John Merrill and State Rep. Arnold Mooney (R-Indian Springs).
