Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville Loves God, Guns & President Trump
Alabama Republicans believe they have a solid chance of retaking the U.S. Senate seat now held by leftist Democrat Doug Jones.
One Republican who hopes to be the candidate running against Jones is former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville.
“This is not a game here,” Tuberville said on The Todd Starnes Show. “All you have do is watch TV for five minutes. This country’s in trouble and we’ve got a bunch of people up in Washington D.C. that have no clue what’s going on in the small towns and rural areas and even in the big cities.”
As a coach that has traveled the country on the recruiting trail, Tuberville said he has been to all kinds of communities.

“I know what’s going on, and people need help,” said Tuberville. “They don’t need a bunch people up there arguing and laughing and crying all the time not getting anything done.”
“I’m with you, coach,” Starnes admitted. “I really appreciate and respect your Christian values, and you are certainly a pro-life candidate in Alabama that went all-in on that abortion ban.”
Restore Faith and Family
“They did, and I was proud of our state legislators,” Tuberville cheered. “We’ve killed 60 million babies in the last 30, 40 years, and we kicked God and family out of this country years ago by all the laws and stuff that we’ve put forth.”
Pointing back to his days on the recruiting trail, Tuberville said a majority of the athletes, regardless of race, had one or no parent.
“We’ve lost all of our family values,” he mourned. “This is still a great country, and we’ve got a big chance in terms of turning this thing around, but somebody has got to go help President Trump because that guy has been fighting his tail off and he’s even had Republicans not backing him. (Former House Speaker) Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) had a great opportunity to make a big difference in this country, and he absolutely dropped the ball.”
Tuberville Supports Trump 110 Percent
“Will you be a supporter of the Trump agenda?” Starnes asked.
“110 percent,” answered Tuberville. “The guy has actually had a job, he’s a business guy, and he understands the country.”
Tuberville said Trump even reminds him of a football coach.
“He reminds me of a football coach that says, ‘Listen, we’re going to work and we’re going grind, and if you can’t handle the grind, I’ll get somebody else,” Tuberville described. “He’s up there to get something done, and we’d better get him re-elected. If we don’t, we have got tough times ahead of us.”
Speaking of tough times, how difficult is it for Tuberville to get votes from Alabama Crimson Tide fans?
“And lot of people ask me that.” Tuberville chuckled. “I always tell them, ‘If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t have Nick Saban. I ran the rest of them off.’”
A survey in June from Montgomery, Alabama-based Cygnal found Tuberville leading (29%) among the Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate seat.
