Not everyone is reporting the victory yet, but it’s just a matter of time:
With 4% of precincts reporting, Tuberville leads Sessions 62%-38% in the #ALSEN runoff

The AP has these results with just 5% of the vote in…
We’ll let you know when more call the race or if this changes, but I think the Decision Desk is going to be right on this one.
UPDATE: Just to note, with 17.4% in it’s basically still 60%-40% Tuberville. Actually make that 20% of the vote in and still the same.
UPDATE II: The AP has finally called the race. Tuberville has increased his lead to 62% now…
UPDATE III: Trump responds…
Wow, just called! @TTuberville – Tommy Tuberville WON big against Jeff Sessions. Will be a GREAT Senator for the incredible people of Alabama. @DougJones is a terrible Senator who is just a Super Liberal puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. Represents Alabama poorly. On to November 3rd.
