Former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville prevailed easily in flipping the seat currently held by Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., after besting former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the primary.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” after Tuesday’s big win, Tuberville said he decided to run to give back to the community and warned that conservative Republicans “must fight back,” insisting that “we can’t be quiet any longer.”
Regardless of how the 2020 presidential election eventually plays out — despite the rush by a complicit media to call the race in Joe Biden’s favor, the election is still in flux, with a number of pending legal actions to be determined — President Donald Trump laid out the blueprint on how to take on the left and do so on their terms.
The GOP’s timid approach of taking the proverbial high road is clearly falling short as the radical left takes more and more ground, and Tuberville shared what’s at stake as he cautioned that we may “lose the country as we know it.”
Explaining that his father was a decorated war hero who landed in Normandy during World War two and drove a tank across Europe, and died in active service at the age of 53, Tuberville said, “I’m an American, and I believe in this country.”
“I’ve had a job for 40 years and I noticed all the problems that we are having across the country, and when I got out of coaching a few years ago, I wanted to give back,” he told Fox News co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “This job was given to a Democrat a couple of years ago here in Alabama — he didn’t represent what we represent here and so for two years I hit the ground running and I haven’t slowed down.”
The former coach said he is excited about the future
“I’m looking forward to casting my vote for this country to make it a better country in the future,” Tuberville said.
He commented on the upcoming run-off elections in Georgia, stressing that the GOP needs to retain those seats as a “firewall” against the radical left.
“We need to keep the Senate on the Republican side,” Tuberville said. “You know, it’s very important that we put up that fire wall for what’s going to happen in the future, but I feel good about it.”
“We just have to fight hard, you know there’s a lot of things out there that’s against us but I’m just excited about this,” Tuberville added.
In saying he was excited about working with the people in Washington — the coach clearly hasn’t met Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and her ilk — Tuberville fell back on his coaching days to say, “I’m going to be a listener, as a coach you have to be a communicator and listener first instead of talking. I learned that dealing with 120 kids every year, so excited about the future.”
This prompted Earhardt to recall a coaching friend who didn’t want to get into politics because he was afraid his conservative values would divide the young men he coached over the years.
“Some of my players came out and were disappointed that I was a President Trump supporter,” Tuberville said. “But I’ve studied this for years, I’m a big Rush Limbaugh fan and I believe in conservative values and I believe in talking about it.”
He stressed how critical it is for conservatives to fight back right now.
“We have to fight back as conservative Republicans, we can’t be quiet any longer,” he said. “We have to stand up for the values of the people of this country.”
“We’ve got to have people stand up for God’s values, Christian values and the values of morals across the country. If we don’t do that, we will lose the country as we know it,” Tuberville concluded.
