The hotly contested race for Jeff Sessions' old senate seat came to an end Tuesday night, with Democrat Doug Jones taking the seat. Moore narrowly defeated former Judge Roy Moore. 


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Doug Jones, a Democratic former prosecutor who mounted a seemingly quixotic Senate campaign in the face of Republican dominance here, defeated his scandal-scarred opponent, Roy S. Moore, after a brutal campaign marked by accusations of sexual abuse and child molestation against the Republican, according to The Associated Press.

The upset delivered an unimagined victory for Democrats and shaved Republicans’ unstable Senate majority to a single seat.
