Who is Doug Jones, Alabama's new U.S. senator?

Roy Moore unwilling to concede

"I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent AL by choosing to vote with the Senate Repub Majority", Gardner said in a statement.

"They don't get the seat, but they also don't have to explain him", Baker said of Moore. Jones will now assume the seat vacated by Sessions when he was nominated as USA attorney general by President Donald Trump. We're seeing that attitude play out among those who are considering holding their noses and voting for Moore anyway even if they disagree with his positions or his behavior.

"I couldn't vote for Roy Moore, I didn't vote for Roy Moore, but I wrote in a distinguished Republican name, and I think a lot of people could do that", Shelby said. "They always look to anyone's fitness to serve" in the Senate, Shelby said.

Moore will now face Democratic candidate Doug Jones in the general election in December.

Jones successfully fought to cobble together an unlikely coalition of African-Americans, liberal whites and moderate Republicans. Roy Moore will always vote with us. "I think the Republican party can do better". Most Jones voters believe the allegations, while most of Moore's supporters do not.

President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee broke with top congressional leaders in standing by Moore despite the accusations, wagering that maintaining the seat in the Republican stronghold was of paramount importance.

"Homosexual conduct should be illegal, yes", Moore answered.

That playbook, she said, "worked for Moore".

Mobile County in southwest Alabama, tends to vote Republican, but in 2012, voted against Moore for Chief Justice, as did Madison County in the far north, where Huntsville is located. The Dec. 10 Fox News Poll shows Jones up by 10 points, the Dec. 9 Emerson Poll shows Moore up by nine points and the Dec. 9 Monmouth Poll actually shows a statistical tie.

And national Democrats, skittish about appearing too involved in the race, mostly stayed away from the state, with the exception of last-minute stumping by Sen.

"Well, one of our attorneys is a Jew", Kayla Moore said, pausing for effect and nodding before adding, "We have very close friends who are Jewish and rabbis and we also fellowship with them".

Israel is an issue favoring Republicans, and therefore Moore.

"We've had this history in the past, going down the road that. has not been productive", Jones said.
