Republican Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville on Tuesday blasted presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his selection of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California, as his vice presidential pick.
“It’s no surprise that Joe Biden has selected a Socialist Democrat like Kamala Harris as his VP pick,” Tuberville said. “Harris is as far left as it gets, and my opponent, Doug Jones, stands side-by-side with her on almost every critical issue.”
“They’ve voted time and again for late-term abortion, gun-grabbing laws, open borders legislation, and other far-left agenda items,” Tuberville said. “We must not let Socialists like Doug Jones and Kamala Harris take over our country! #MAGA #KAG2020 #TrumpAndTuberville #ALSen.”
The Trump campaign came out punching in response to the announcement that Harris would be the vice presidential pick.
In an email to supporters, President Donald Trump wrote, “Wow. Just when we thought the idea of Joe Biden being President of the United States couldn’t get any worse, he announces that Kamala Harris, a failed presidential candidate and a corrupt former California Attorney General, will be his running mate.”
“First, Kamala Harris attacked Joe Biden’s racist policies (did she forget?),” Trump continued. “Next, she ends her pathetic run at President. Then, 3 months after ending her own campaign, she reluctantly endorses Biden. After that, Biden gets accused of sexual assault, so he vows to choose a woman as his VP. And now, Sleepy Joe announces Phony Kamala as his running mate.”
“These two liberals are as far-left as they come,” Trump charged. “Between both of their terrible records, it’s obvious that this radical duo is PERFECT for each other but WRONG for America. They are WEAK on crime and want to see our cities burn, unlike President Trump and Vice President Pence who are working tirelessly to restore LAW AND ORDER. It’s going to be up to Patriots like YOU to save our Nation from that dark fate.”
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are seeking a second four-year term. Tuberville is a former Auburn University head football coach. He is running against incumbent U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, D-Alabama, in the Nov. 3 general election.
