Jeff Sessions endorses Tuberville; signals end to his public career

The public career of Jeff Sessions that began 45 years ago as an assistant U.S. Attorney in Mobile came to a conclusion Tuesday inside a banquet room at a Hampton Inn & Suites following his defeat to political newcomer Tommy Tuberville.

Sessions, 73, congratulated the former Auburn University head football coach during a concession speech that also sounded very much like a retirement announcement of a lengthy political career.

Sessions endorsed Tuberville ahead of the Nov. 3 general election, adding that he had called the former coach and offered him his support ahead of the general election against Democratic U.S. Senator Doug Jones. With 89% of precincts counted, Tuberville led Sessions by 22 percentage points.

“The people of Alabama have spoken,” Sessions said. “They want a new fresh face to go to Washington. I think we will have that.”
