The voters of Alabama went to the polls Tuesday and elected Doug Jones to be their next U.S. senator. The shocking come-from-behind victory was met with nationwide jubilation by Democrats and their allies.
Alabama Democratic Party Chair Nancy Worley said in a statement, “Tonight, the people of Alabama elected Doug Jones, a man of intelligence and character, to the United States Senate. Doug’s hard work, crisscrossing the state for weeks on end, paid off in a great victory for working families and the “kitchen table” issues that voters care about. He will continue to work hard to protect jobs for Alabamians, good schools, affordable health care and justice for everyone in our state.”
