The Alabama Senate race is looking VERY HOPEFUL for Republicans in 2020!
The Senate seat currently held by Democrat Doug Jones was won by only 1.7%, and is primed for a take-back. Jones the Democrat received 673,896 votes to Republican Moore’s 651,972. An additional 22,852 voted for the write-in Independent candidate.
In 2014, Jeff Sessions won the race for AL Senate with 97.3% of the vote! A “write-in” candidate received 2.7%.
When Sessions vacated his seat in 2017 to become our Attorney General, a Special Election was held. President Trump said prior to the primary for this election that he liked Roy Moore, but Moore couldn’t win in the general. President Trump therefore endorsed Luther Strange, making it know that he would switch and support Moore should he win. Moore did win the primary, but just as our President said, he did not win the general. Because the special election was held to fill the remainder of Jeff Sessions term, and that term is slated to end in 2020 the seat is once again on the ballot, this time to fill a 6-year term.
