December 12, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement on Doug Jones’ victory in the Alabama Senate race:

“Doug Jones will be an outstanding Senator who will represent Alabama well. He was a great candidate and will be an even better Senator.

“Roy Moore was an awful candidate and never should have gotten to the Senate. But make no mistake about it, just like in Virginia, Democrats are energized, focused on the middle class and those struggling to get there, and things are looking better and better for 2018.”
