    Former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville beat former U.S. senator and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday in the Alabama GOP senate primary. Tuberville solidly beat Sessions and the race was called by national media less than two hours after the polls closed. The main factor in the Tuberville win was the endorsement of President Donald Trump.

    On Saturday, after President Trump tweeted that "Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don't want him back in Washington!" Sessions responded, saying Trump's tweets were "juvenile insults" and emphasized that "Alabama does not take orders from Washington."

    The day before the primary, GOP political operative Angi Stalnaker told the press, "Jeff Sessions allowed the narrative to become Jeff Sessions versus Donald Trump. Tommy Tuberville really has nothing to do with this race at all. He's not making speeches. He's not doing debates. His only argument is Donald Trump likes me. If a light pole had run against Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump would have endorsed the light pole."

    Trump was angry with Sessions because Sessions, as attorney general, recused himself and let Democrats run roughshod over himself and the law during the Russian hoax investigations. Given that Alabama is a deep red state, the chances of Republicans beating Democrat incumbent Doug Jones, especially with a football hero in a football-crazed state, and flipping the seat red are very good in the fall.

    Tuesday primary results across the nation were generally good for the president and bad for Democrats, as Democrats continue to engage in a civil war of establishment Democrats versus the hard left. One bright spot for the Democrats was in Maine.

    In their quest to retake the Senate, the Democrats may have found one victor in the winner of their Maine Senate primary, Sara Gideon. She will be facing Republican incumbent Susan Collins in the fall and Collins has taken heat in the Democrat-leaning state for her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Gideon has amassed a $20 million campaign war chest.

    However, Trump-endorsed candidates romped to victory in other locales. The president's former personal physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, won in a GOP Texas congressional primary. Trump had endorsed him, the outgoing incumbent had endorsed Jackson's opponent. Trump endorsed candidates won in other GOP primary races in several states and most are expected to cruise to victory in November.

    The Democrats are divided against themselves, as Senate primary results in Texas and Kentucky had party establishment candidates beating left-wing insurgents. The margins were so close it highlights the deep divide in the party and it will be difficult to bridge that chasm, as leftists have long memories and tend to sit on their hands in November if they lose primaries, in time to beat Republican Senate incumbents John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell in the general election.
