CBS 42 arrives to Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville’s watch party

CBS 42’s political reporter Reshad Hudson arrived at the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery ahead of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville’s election night watch party. The former Auburn University football coach says he’s left it all on the field. Apart from the presidential match-up between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, this race is top of mind for voters in Alabama–a historically red state with a sole Democratic senator, incumbent Doug Jones. The nation is watching too.

Jones won the seat in 2017 against controversial candidate former Alabama Supreme Court judge Roy Moore, whose campaign crumbled amidst allegations of sexual misconduct.

Albeit a political newcomer who has mostly avoided media interviews, Tuberville’s Republican status and backing from Trump pose a strong threat to a Jones’ victory.
