Georgia border county could show support for Alabama Senate race

  • Doug Jones stepped onto the stage to address supporters Tuesday

Alabama's Democratic Party has been on life support since Republicans gained ascendency years ago, holding no statewide offices and a minority in each legislative chamber, but Jones supported an effort to revive the organization in 2013.

In an interview with Bill Press on C-SPAN 2's After Words, Press read an excerpt from one of Moore's Supreme Court decisions in which the judge describes homosexuality as "abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a crime against nature and a violation of the laws of nature and nature's God upon which the nation and our laws are predicated". Still, almost four in 10 say they made their decision in November or after that, including about one in five who decided this month.

Technically Moore is facing off against Democrat Doug Jones, as well as potential write-ins like Libertarian Party candidate Ron Bishop. He railed against McConnell and establishment Republicans in the Alabama Republican primary and told Fox News in September that he wouldn't have voted for the Republican health care plan.

Still, many Washington Republicans viewed the defeat of Moore as perhaps the best outcome for the party nationally despite the short-term sting. Most Jones voters believe the allegations, while most of Moore's supporters do not. Multrie wasn't influenced by accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore, she said, because she already did not like him.

Jones' election is a significant - and improbable - blow to the GOP, which will now have just a one seat advantage in the Senate. According to Richards, poll workers there say voter turnout has been good in the county so far, which may bode well for Moore.

Pope Francis wants to change the Lord's Prayer
Pope Francis is calling for a new translation of one of the lines from the world's most famous prayer, the Our Father . His suggestion is to use "do not let us fall into temptation " instead, he told Italian TV on Wednesday night.

Trump officially endorsed Moore in mid-November, writing off the allegations against him as decades old and unproven, and held a rally in Pensacola, Florida - miles from the Alabama state line - just days before the election, urging voters to support Moore.

Polling of the race was scant, and the polling data were scattershot: While one survey released Monday morning showed Moore with a 9-point lead, another poll released the same day gave Jones a 10-point advantage in the race, FiveThirtyEight reported.

It's also not impossible that Jones, who distanced himself from national Democrats as he campaigned, could at times side with Republicans, given that he represents a deeply red state.

Israel is an issue favoring Republicans, and therefore Moore. "It's time we take the road that's going to get us on the path to progress".
