By now the news of the defeat of the ‘Bama pedophile has been making every show on 24 hour news networks…..but in case you could care less….a short synopsis…….
It’s Doug Jones. The Democrat won election to the Senate from Alabama on Tuesday, dealing a political blow to President Trump, reports the AP. Jones narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore, a one-time GOP pariah who was embraced by the Republican Party and the president even after facing allegations of sexual impropriety. An attorney and former prosecutor, Jones rallied voters on a message of moving past the Moore controversies. He was buoyed by an influx of national Democratic cash and endorsements.
Jones’ victory is set to narrow the slim Republican majority over Democrats in the Senate to 51-49. His win in the Republican stronghold energizes the Democratic Party as it looks to build on anti-Trump sentiment to mount a challenge next year to Republican control of Congress. With 92% of votes counted, Jones had 49.5% of the vote to Moore’s 48.8%, per CNN, which also called the race for Jones.
What does this mean?
It means that the GOP had a deeply flawed candidate. It does not mean much more than that. The networks would have us all believing that there is a ground swell for Dems…..I just do not see it.
But I see what the Dems are doing….they are setting the stage for 2018….they are putting out as much positive spin as possible over this election. I understand why they are making more of this than there is…….
Jones needs to go and kiss every black person he meets for without them he would be shoveling Sassy’s crap.
Now on to 2018……and we will see just how big this vote was in reality.
