Former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’s quest to return to the U.S. Senate will likely face a stiff challenge on March 31 in a competitive runoff against former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville.

With 85% of precincts counted, Tuberville held onto a slim 33.6%-31.4% lead over Sessions. Neither man was anywhere near the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff.

That’s because three-term U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne of Fairhope was in third place with 24.5%. Former Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, the Republican nominee during the 2017 special Senate election, placed a distant fourth.

Sessions, who served as Alabama’s junior senator for 20 years before resigning in 2017 to become the nation’s 84th Attorney General, gathered with supporters at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza hotel.
