SC Chief Justice: Parker (R) 53, Vance (D) 39

Ugh, I thought that at least Alabamians would reject Roy Moore's Mini-Me.
But I guess that R next to his name is all that matters.

I mean, they barely rejected the real Roy Moore who was a literal pedophile. So is it really surprising they wouldn't reject his mini me who presumably is not a literal pedophile?

Pretty hilarious given that this state elected a relatively liberal Democratic Senator last year. Anyway, Likely R.

Against a pedophile.

Jones is finished against a non pedophile.

If Luther Strange was the GOP nominee in AL last year , Jones would have lost by double digits

Not this nonsense again.

I guess we'll have to hear this myth for many years to come, just like the one that without Perot's candidacy Poppy Bush would have won.

It's not a myth. There is absolutely nothing special about Doug Jones; he was just another sacrificial lamb plucked off the street who lucked out by having the good fortune to run against an accused pedophile. He would've been blown out, probably in the neighborhood of 60-40, by literally anyone else.
This is Alabama. An uninspiring and lackluster generic R is about to crush an A-list democratic recruit in the governor's race, do we really think that Jones won the senate race on his own merits? The idea is laughable; all it amounts to is an attempt to hoist a Democratic folk hero higher up on his pedestal.

I mostly agree with this. But considering the Dem overperformance in special elections and the controversy surrounding Strange I think it's possible Jones could've done better than expected, as in "only" lose by 10-15 points.
