BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Former Alabama Senator and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions challenged his Republican Senate opponent former Auburn Football head coach Tommy Tuberville to a series of five debates between now and election day.

Tuberville, who said he’s only seen Sessions once in 17 months, said Sessions is on his own. Tuberville said he and the other senate candidates held forums for eight months and tried to get Sessions to join.

Sessions said the voters deserve to hear the two men debate the issues in person.
