Alabama Senators Tommy Tuberville and Katie Britt have sharply criticized the decision.

"President Biden has irresponsibly decided to yank a military decision out of the Air Force’s hands in the name of partisan politics,” Britt said via a release.

“Huntsville finished first in both the Air Force’s Evaluation Phase and Selection Phase, leaving no doubt that the Air Force’s decision to choose Redstone as the preferred basing location was correct purely on the merits.”

Senator Tommy Tuberville added, “As soon as Joe Biden took office, he paused movement on that decision and inserted politics into what had been a fair and objective competition--not because the facts had changed, but because the political party of the sitting president had changed.”
