Former Auburn coach and U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville will speak in Madison Sept. 18

MADISON – Former Auburn head football coach Tommy Tuberville will be in Madison Sept. 18. Now a candidate for U.S. Senate, Tuberville will speak at the Republican Women of Madison monthly luncheon.

The luncheon will be held at Best Western Plus Hotel on Madison Blvd. in Madison. The event will begin at 11 a.m.

Tuberville will discuss his position on issues facing Alabama and the United States. He launched his campaign in April to try to win the Republican nomination and unseat Democrat Doug Jones. The primary election will be March 3.

Over the last several months, Tuberville said recently, he has tried to stay on the road six days a week to share why he’s running for office.

“Like I tell people, I don’t need this job. I want this job,” he said. “I don’t need the money. I love the country and the state and I feel like I’m (seeking office) for the right reasons.”

He said he doesn’t believe that a congressional position should be a career job.

“It should be public service,” Tuberville said, pledging to make decisions based on the nation’s laws and Constitution and what his constituents want, not to please lobbyists or special interest groups.

“We have a great country and a great state, but we can make (them) better,” he said.

Tuberville has said he wants to do his part to help bring new manufacturing and manufacturing technology opportunities to the state.

“What better person to sell people to come (to Alabama) than a football coach? That’s all I’ve ever done,” he said. “People will know me the first day I walk on the Senate floor. I’ve built a reputation of coaching and building and winning.”
