C4: GOP Between Rock And Hard Place Should Moore Win

How Black Women Voted In Alabama Is The Reason Roy Moore Lost Drew Angerer  Getty Images News  Getty Images

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. But even so, Judge Moore, for the last 22 years, basically, has been a very polarizing figure.

The seat has been held by Republican Luther Strange since February, when Jeff Sessions left the Senate to be sworn in as USA attorney general. Multrie, who works in a children's hospital, was not influenced by accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore, she said, because she already did not like him.

A Moore win ensures that a reliably Republican seat stays with the GOP through 2021. "They always look to anyone's fitness to serve" in the Senate, Shelby said.

If Democrat Doug Jones wins, he would be the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in more than 20 years, and give the Republicans a razor-thin 51-vote majority.

Jones successfully fought to cobble together an unlikely coalition of African-Americans, liberal whites and moderate Republicans. "That is where Roy Moore is in the state of Alabama". At the center of the Trump-McConnell split over Alabama is that McConnell said the allegations facing Moore are credible, while Trump - who faces allegations of sexual assault himself - cast doubt on Moore's accusers.

C4 says the Alabama Senate special election is a toss-up, and much depends on turnout.

Fewer than one in 10 Republicans crossed party lines to vote for Doug Jones, but Jones has a slight edge among independents.

This is something that - I'm speaking about the number of reports that have taken place over the last couple of weeks. The confrontation between the two didn't end there, as Acosta tried to asked Sanders to cite a "fake news" story .

"Regardless of the allegations against him, I believe he is an honorable man", Bright said.

Alabama is also considered one of the safest Republican states in the nation.

Mobile County in southwest Alabama, tends to vote Republican, but in 2012, voted against Moore for Chief Justice, as did Madison County in the far north, where Huntsville is located.

Supporters filed into Moore's election night party in Montgomery shortly before polls closed at 7 p.m.

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala. dismissed the Moore loss, saying that math favors Republicans to hold the Senate in 2018.

President Donald Trump recently threw his support behind Moore after initially endorsing unusual in the Republican primary. "It's time we take the road that's going to get us on the path to progress".
