Democrat Doug Jones has defeated Republican Roy Moore for the Senate seat held until recently by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Moore was overwhelmingly the favorite until nine women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Why it matters: Alabama is a deep red state that went 62% for President Trump and hadn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in 25 years. Trump endorsed Roy Moore, recorded a robocall on his behalf and labeled Jones a “Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Democrat.” The defeat will narrow the Republican margin in the Senate to 51-49.
