Famed coach Tuberville runs for Senate seat as an outsider

Tommy Tuberville

IRONDALE, Ala. (AP) — Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville is stressing his status as a political outsider in his bid for U.S. Senate.

Tuberville is part of a crowded Republican primary field competing with former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is seeking to reclaim the Senate seat he held for two decades.

Boosted by fame from years as a college football coach, Tuberville  has become one of the front-runners in the competitive field.
