Ses­sions loses Se­nate runoff as GOP hopes to re­gain seat

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION / WORLD -

MO­BILE, Ala. — Former U.S. At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions lost the Repub­li­can nom­i­na­tion for his old Se­nate seat in Alabama to former col­lege foot­ball coach Tommy Tu­berville in a bit­ter de­feat egged on by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump. Tu­berville, 65, will chal­lenge Demo­cratic U.S. Sen. Doug Jones. The seat is widely viewed as Repub­li­cans’ best chance for a pickup as they try to main­tain their thin Se­nate ma­jor­ity.
