Senator Doug Jones of Alabama

The Washington Post reports: Jones victorious in stunning Alabama Senate upset

It was the first Democratic Senate victory in a quarter-century in Alabama, one of the reddest of red states, and proved anew that party loyalty is anything but sure in the age of Trump. The Republican loss was a major embarrassment for the president and a fresh wound for the nation’s already divided GOP.


“We have shown not just around the state of Alabama, but we have shown the country the way — that we can be unified,” Jones declared as supporters in a Birmingham ballroom cheered, danced and cried tears of joy. He added, “This entire race has been about dignity and respect.”


Hurray, congratulations Mister Jones…
Republicans are tweeting moans and groans
while Democrats are dropping microphones!
