POLITICAL ANALYST: ELECTION MIGHT BE A CLOSE ONE
Today is the primary runoff election for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat between Jeff Sessions and Tommy Tuberville.
The former Auburn coach narrowly beat the former attorney general in the primary, with Tuberville getting 33% of the vote and Sessions coming in right behind with 32%.
Early polling saw Tuberville with a double digit lead on Sessions, but WVUA political analyst Steve Flowers says that gap has closed.
“Sessions has a real good chance to pull off an upset because low voter turnout, in my opinion, favors Sessions,” Flowers said.
Because of the pandemic, there may not be many people voting in-person.
But the Secretary of State’s office reported that lots of people have opted to vote by mail because of the coronavirus excuse.
