Sen. Tommy Tuberville

Senator for Alabama

pronounced TAH-mee // TUH-ber-vil


Tuberville is the junior senator from Alabama and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Tuberville is next up for reelection in 2026 and serves until Jan 3, 2027.

Tuberville is among the Republican legislators who participated in the months-long, multifarious attempted coup following the 2020 presidential election. In the days leading up to January 6, Tuberville had announced his intent to object on that day to the inclusion of some states in the final tally that determined the next president, which would have disenfranchised millions of voters based on lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal theories all falsely claiming various sorts of mass fraud that did not occur. The announcement amplified the message that inspired the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol. On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the insurrection at the Capitol, Tuberville voted to reject the state-certified election results of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania (states narrowly won by Democrats), which could have changed the outcome of the election. These legislators have generally changed their story after their vote, claiming it was merely a protest and not intended to change the outcome of the election as they clearly sought prior to the vote. The January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol disrupted Congress’s count of electors that determined the outcome of the presidential election with the goal to prevent President Joe Biden from taking office.
