LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville is joining the Republican race to win back the Alabama Senate seat from Democrat Doug Jones in 2020.
Tuberville announced his candidacy Saturday on Twitter, saying: "After more than a year of listening to Alabama's citizens, I have heard your concerns and hopes for a better tomorrow. I am humbled to announce the next step -- I will be a @GOP candidate for US Senate. I invite you to join my team."
Already in the GOP race is Bradley Byrne, a congressman. The primary is set for March 3, 2020.
