    Doug Jones was certified by Alabama's state canvassing board today as the winner of the Dec. 12 special election for the U.S. Senate, despite a last ditch legal challenge by opponent Roy Moore. Jones issued a statement immediately after the certification. "I am looking forward to going to work for the people of Alabama in the new year," Jones stated. "As I said on election night, our victory marks a new chapter for our state and the nation. I will be an independent voice and work to find common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to...

    It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....
  • Dem Senator: Ukraine Whistleblower Complaint is ‘Hearsay’

    Sen. Doug Jones (D., Ala.) said much of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint depended on "hearsay" and that Congress cannot impeach officials based on hearsay during a Sunday interview on MSNBC's Kasie DC. Jones broke with House Democrats when he criticized the whistleblower allegation that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The first-term senator said he was skeptical of using secondhand complaints as the basis for removing a sitting president from office, echoing the sentiments of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). "A lot of that allegation, a lot of the whistleblower complaint is in fact hearsay. It is what...
  • Doug Jones is a racist': wants black Alabama officials to 'pick the cotton'

    A top Democratic official in Alabama has said that one of his party's U.S. senators in the state "is a racist" and accused him of marginalizing black party members and wanting them "to pick the cotton" but not "manage the plantation." The Democratic National Committee's Black Caucus Vice Chairman Randy Kelley, who is black, blasted Doug Jones, who is white, and his allies in the DNC for pressuring African Americans to increase the representation of Hispanic, Asian, youth, gay, and disabled party members in a new "Diversity Caucus," a move he argues would reduce the influence of black Democrats. Kelley...

    In the shameless shambles that is Morning Joe, they can report on Ilhan Omar -- but only the parts where they think Republicans look ridiculous. On today's show, Joe Scarborough, with an assist from Eugene Scott of the Washington Post, whom the paper's official bio describes as a "reporter covering identity politics," criticized the Alabama Republican Party for adopting a resolution calling for the expulsion of Omar from Congress. Scarborough approvingly cited Omar's tweet in response to the resolution, in which she mockingly noted the 2016 Senate nomination of Roy Moore. Scarborough also quoted Scott to the effect that the...

    Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Google+ Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Wednesday that Doug Jones’s Senate win in Alabama is “good day for America” because it was a blow to Steve Bannon. Bannon, a former White House chief strategist, campaigned for Jones’s GOP challenger, Roy Moore, who lost the race for the vacant Senate seat after weeks of mounting accusations that he sexually molested teenage girls. “That was a good day for America yesterday in the sense that Bannon lost,” Scaramucci told Bloomberg News. “I don’t think it was a great day for the...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s campaign press secretary suggested Russia was behind Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after she landed an effective blow on Harris’ record as a prosecutor during the Democrat debates on Wednesday night. Her press secretary, Ian Sams, tweeted shortly after the attack an NBC News article from February 2019 claiming the “Russian propaganda machine” was promoting Gabbard: “Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,'” he tweeted. He later...

    FULL TITLE: Arizona Dem Kyrsten Sinema joins GOP in push for program that would quickly deport migrants without valid asylum claims Freshman Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., was one of a number of Democrats to join Republican colleagues this week who called for the implementation of a pilot program that would work to quickly identify and deport migrants at the border who are judged not to have a valid asylum claim. Sinema, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Doug Jones, D-Ala., joined Republicans in writing to President Trump urging the implementation of Operation Safe Return -- a Department of Homeland...

    Well, they've gone and done it. The House Oversight and Reform Committee voted to authorize a subpoena for White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway to testify about her potential Hatch Act violations. The panel says that Conway engaged in "egregious, repeated, and very public violations” of the ethics law. "Here, we have a clear-cut case of a federal employee violating federal law over and over and over again,”  Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) alleged on Wednesday after the panel's vote.Conway knows what's going on. The Democrats on the panel, she said earlier this week, want to silence her."They want a big roll of...

    On Thursday, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore made his expected candidacy for the 2020 U.S. Senate Republican nomination official with an announcement in Montgomery. Reactions to Moore’s candidacy have been plentiful, and on the Thursday broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin, author of “Unfreedom of the Press,” offered his response with an endorsement for State Rep. Arnold Mooney (R-Indian Springs). Levin called Mooney “the most conservative individual” in a field that includes Moore, Mooney, former Auburn head football head coach Tommy Tuberville and U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Fairhope). “I want to make...

    Alabama Republican Roy Moore has announced he is running for U.S. Senate again in 2020 after failing to win the seat two years ago amid sexual misconduct accusations. Moore announced his campaign Thursday, seeking an eventual rematch against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones. The announcement upends an election viewed by Republicans as a top priority in 2020 and ignores President Donald Trump's warning that he "cannot win."

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Thursday that he and his allies will actively work to oppose Roy Moore's bid for Alabama's Senate seat after the conservative firebrand announced he was jumping into the race. "We'll be opposing Roy Moore vigorously," McConnell told reporters after returning to the Capitol after a White House briefing on Iran. McConnell's comments come after he warned, during an interview with the Associated Press shortly before Moore announced his bid, that he would "oppose him in every way." Moore announced on Thursday afternoon that he would launch a bid for Alabama's Senate seat...

    Donald Trump Jr. says Roy Moore (R) – the failed Senate candidate who lost to Doug Jones (D) in Alabama’s special election in 2017 – is going directly against the president by launching another Senate bid and is doing a disservice to conservatives in the process. Moore announced his intentions to run for Alabama’s Senate seat Thursday afternoon. “I’m ready to do it again and yes, I will run for the United States Senate in 2020,” Moore announced. “The people of Alabama are not only angry, but they’re going to act on that anger,” he continued. “The people of Alabama...

    Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is set to announce his plans for the 2020 Alabama senate race on Thursday at 2 p.m. at The Ballroom in Montgomery. Moore lost the U.S. Senate race in 2017 amid allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers. Moore denied the allegations. President Donald Trump last month tweeted that Moore “cannot win” and said Republicans need to retake the seat in the once reliable red state. Democratic Sen. Doug Jones currently holds the position. The event is open to invited guests and credentialed press.

    Just the suggestion of former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore making another run at the U.S. Senate draws adverse reactions from some in the political class, and in recent days that has shown to be the case. In 2017, Moore lost by nearly 22,000 votes, a margin of 1.7%, to now-Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) for a seat that is up once again in 2020. During an interview with Huntsville radio’s WVNN, Moore said he had not yet made a decision on whether or not to run again but expects to during June.

    State Rep. Arnold Mooney, R-Indian Springs, announced Monday his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate. Mooney is running for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Doug Jones. “Alabamians want a Constitutional Conservative who can beat Doug Jones and who will take on the Establishment in Washington. That’s why I’m running,” Mooney said in a statement. Mooney is a State Representative from north Shelby County. “I am not a career politician,” Mooney writes on his website. “I’m a conservative and an outsider. But I look around and see a rising tide of socialism on the Left...

    There is inspiration in the Alabama outcome. American political standards made a comeback. Roy Moore’s loss was not a setback for the GOP; it was a setback for freakishness,an assertion of prudential judgment by the electorate, and came as a relief. A friend landed at JFK on election night. As the plane taxied to the gate, the pilot came on the PA and announced that Doug Jones was in the lead. The entire plane, back to front, burst into applause. “A big broad nerve was hit in this thing,” said the friend. Primary voters should absorb what happened after they...

    President Trump is urging Roy Moore not to run for the U.S. Senate again. "Republicans cannot allow themselves to again lose the Senate seat in the Great State of Alabama. This time it will be for Six Years, not just Two. I have NOTHING against Roy Moore, and unlike many other Republican leaders, wanted him to win. But he didn’t, and probably won’t," Trump tweeted on Wednesday.
