Alabama election: Doug Jones scores stunning win

Washington– U.S. Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday became the first Democrat in a generation to win a Senate seat in Alabama, beating Republican Roy Moore amid a firestorm of allegations that the GOP candidate had sexually abused teens.

Moore, however, refused to concede Tuesday night.

“When the vote is this close … it’s not over,” Moore told supporters after Jones declared victory.

The results are nothing short of an embarrassment for President Donald Trump and a disaster for Republicans in Washington as the reliably red state of Alabama elected its first Democratic senator since the early 1990s.

“I think I have been waiting all my life and now I don’t know what the hell to say,” Jones said Tuesday night, CNN reported.
