Congratulations Doug Jones!
Doug is our new Senate-Elect as of the December 12th 2017 Special Election. Everyone worked hard and persevered and it has paid off in multiple dividends in this election! A victory for not only Democrats, but Alabama as well. Winning by just over a 1% lead, it was an extremely close race, but the last stretch really proves that Alabama needs real leadership. Thank you everyone for all your efforts!
