Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday defeated Roy Moore in Alabama’s election for a seat in the U.S. Senate.
Moore has denied sex scandal claims that cast a cloud over his election bid, especially in the waning days of the two candidates’ bid for the U.S. Senate seat from Alabama.
Moore, the former chief justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court, has faced multiple allegations he pursued romantic relationships with teenage girls while he was in his thirties — accusations that have dramatically shaken up the race. He has denied the claims.
Alabama hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in 25 years.
