Alabama Senate election results

Today marks the first day in over 25 years that Alabama has elected a Democrat.

In a close election, Doug Jones has beaten Roy Moore to claim the state’s Senate seat.

According to statistics from the New York Times, Jones claimed 49.9% of the vote compared to Moore’s 48.4%.

The victory helps to tighten the Senate seat gap between the two parties going into 2018 and will shorten the Republican’s majority which may have an impact on future decisions.
