The Results Are In

(Gordon) Doug Jones won the Senate Seat in Alabama in a very close race. This is a victory for the American people and another step towards the demise of the Trump regime.

Moore's defeat is a stinging rebuke to President Donald Trump, who had endorsed the GOP candidate despite the misconduct allegations. In the meantime Trump is doing battle with NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who won't buckle under his bullying. Then there's the ongoing Robert Mueller investigation the face of American politics reshapes itself.
