It's Over


It was a great win but I still can't help but think over 48% of Alabama supported a child molester, a homophobic, anti-Semite, misogynist and racist.

Democrat Doug Jones has pulled off a major upset in Alabama by defeating Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday’s special election, Fox News has projected, becoming the first Democrat to win election to the Senate from the deeply conservative state in 25 years.

"We have come so far and the people of Alabama have spoken," a jubilant Jones said during his victory speech in Birmingham late Tuesday.

The dramatic Democratic win in deep red Alabama cuts the GOP’s Senate majority from 52 to 51, further dimming Republican hopes of enacting major legislation backed by President Trump.

But there may be a silver lining for Republicans: A victory by Moore, who is embroiled in a sex scandal, might have made it more difficult for the GOP to retain control of the Senate in next year’s midterm elections.

With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Jones was ahead of Moore 49.5 to 48.8 percent.

The margin is being closely watched. Under Alabama law, a mandatory recount takes place if a candidate wins by a half percent or less.

The good thing is that he doesn't have to concede for Jones to be certified as the winner and seated in the Senate.

Actually as i have explained previously, this move really gas little to,do with politics. As it has everything to do with family. And in that regard when our two daughters and their families both ended up in Europe - totally independent of each other — but both within 200 km of my family home - one in italy, andd the other in Austria - there was no way you could keepmy wife from followig them. But i cannot begin to eexplain ho w complicated the logistics of this move are.

Re: It's Over


It's not over according to Judge Roy and his "god"

Moore, meanwhile, refused to concede and raised the possibility of a recount during a brief appearance at a somber campaign party in Montgomery.

“It’s not over,” Moore said. He added, “We know that God is still in control.”
