MOBILE, Alabama – Democrat Doug Jones won election to the U.S. Senate from Alabama in a sharp blow to President Trump that narrows the GOP’s majority in the Senate to two. He beat Roy Moore, a former chief justice of the state Supreme Court who had been accused of sexual misconduct.
As Alabama’s special election neared the finish line on Monday, Moore, with the help of former aide to President Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, renewed his call for voters to help him “clean the swamp.”
Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, on Monday campaigned with NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley. Barkley told supporters that Alabama has, “got to stop looking like idiots to the nation.”
