First of all, congratulations Doug Jones on doing what many said could not be done. And thank you Alabama for restoring hope in a lot of people, especially me. I was afraid this state would put that idiot in the Senate anyway… and to be clear, Moore had plenty of supporters turn out today. And … Continue reading
