Please support Democratic Senator Doug Jones in his run for re-election in 2020. Also, stop talking shit about Alabama, please.
Doug Jones pulled out an electrifying victory in the Alabama special Senate election in 2017. In a state where Democrats have trouble getting traction, he defeated Republican Roy Moore.
It was awesome. Jones’s win was one of the great cheering victories of the post-2016-election era.
The victory was firm, but close–1.5 percent. Moore was an especially noxious Republican candidate. Alabamans of all persuasions joined forces to defeat Moore, and Tony the Democrat’s team of GOTV postcard-writers contributed, too. Had Jones run against anyone else, he might not have won.
Well, Jones is up for re-election in 2020. He’s regarded as the most vulnerable Senate Democrat. He needs your help.
The good news: the Cook Political Report regards the Alabama Senate race as a toss-up, rather than one that’s lean Republican, likely Republican, or solid Republican. And it feels weird to say Roy Moore’s entry into the race is a good thing, but it is as far as Jones is concerned. He beat him once already, and the national GOP is committed to rejecting Moore.
Please consider including Doug Jones in your Core Four for 2020.
Also? Stop talking shit about Alabama. Yes, the state’s leaders have been up to some seriously dispiriting nonsense of late.
But when you write Alabama off, you write off hordes of native Alabamans who have been, and still are, fighting the good fight.
More to the point, you’re writing off the people who toiled to elect Jones in 2017. Cut it out. Don’t cut them out. Ok?
