Doug Jones trails Roy Moore by 6 points, new poll shows

"I would like to congratulate Roy Moore on his victory in Alabama tonight".

"I think incumbents in Texas, especially in the Republican Party, are breathing a little heavier this morning, given the results that happened in Alabama on Tuesday", Theriault says. When asked if the president shares the Alabama Republican's views, Sanders replied, "Not that I'm aware of".

Democrats are hoping Moore's many controversies may play to Jones' benefit, but it is likely to be the other way around.

Trump's approach to LGBT issues may not be the same as Moore's, but still is filled with anti-LGBT actions. "It depends on where you're running from". Moore, who has made his political career masquerading as a state Supreme Court justice - and was twice removed from that elected post - has little policy bona fides.

Alabama Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Doug Jones said he would work to protect access to contraception and a woman's right to an abortion if he wins December's election against Republican Roy Moore. We just have too many career politicians on both sides of the aisle.

The Alabama special election is even more intriguing than usual because President Donald Trump has chosen to back what is considered the "establishment candidate" by his base, many of whom are pushing for the alternate conservative candidate.

"Not that I'm aware of", Sanders said.

He thinks Republicans see the disrupters in the party as being on the rise.

"One of the reasons there's a space (for insurgents) is because we haven't delivered", said GOP Sen. "If I'm a Republican out there, I'd be pissed off too".

The Republican civil war has been dragging on for years, but this week's trifecta of failures by GOP Senate leadership might be proof enough for disaffected Republican voters that the party simply can't govern.

"He's very polarizing", Sen.

"Our rights don't come from the government, they don't come from the Bill of Rights, they come from almighty God", said Moore. He defeated Luther Strange, who is now serving in the seat, in a race that exposed battle lines within the GOP.

In face, Trump deleted tweets supporting odd after Moore won, which could present legal problems. "We came here to praise and honour him". Meyers quipped, "Can you explain DACA to me?"

Trump said on Twitter Wednesday that he had spoken to Moore Tuesday night "for the first time".

Sessions won election to his seat in 1996 by a margin of just seven percent; prior to his election, Democrats had held Alabama's class 2 seat since 1871. Another 263 people, 44.5 percent, said they will vote for Jones.

Trump committed himself to odd when he traveled to Huntsville, Ala., on Friday to campaign for the incumbent senator.
