Victory in Alabama (x2)

by Janice Van Cleve - Special to the SGN

Democrat Doug Jones beat Republican child molesting judge Roy Moore for US Senate! This is a Yooooge blow to Republican control in the Senate and also a stunning personal defeat for Trump. The Republican majority in the Senate was razor thin before this vote and now it is even thinner - 51 to 49 - especially since the Republicans cannot always count on their own. Republican Senators Bob Corker, John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Susan Collins have already rebelled against Trump last summer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is no fan of Trump either.

The final vote was 49.9% for Jones and 48.4% for Moore. Very close but not within the margin to force a recount according to Alabama law. Alabama's Secretary of State has until January 3 to certify the vote. Roy Moore has not conceded defeat although Trump, Congress, Alabama state officials, and the media have all accepted his loss (and many of them, gratefully).

This defeat significantly weakens Trump. His own party is realizing that he is a liability to them. His tweets and rants will become more dismissible. His vulnerability to the investigation into his collusion with the Russians is increased because fewer people will stand by him. The victory of the Democrats, added to their victories across the country in November will embolden them and give them tremendous momentum for the 2018 midterms. This victory demonstrates, to put a twist on the Borg claim on Star Trek: RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE.
