Alabama had a special election to replace a senate seat that was once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Since Alabama is a blood red state with a history of violence and oppression, anyone would have assumed that any Republican could easily win that state. But this election was different. With anti-Trump feelings on the rise, and a weak
candidate that was chosen by the alt-right Bannon crew, Alabamians were at crossroads. Should they vote for an alleged sexual predator or a liberal democrat that prosecuted the Birmingham Bombing case? For Americans with a moral conscience, the choice seemed obvious. Don't choose the candidate with a defined history of being ousted twice from the courts and having unwanted relationships with teenage girls.
Fortunately, Alabamians made a historic decision, sending shockwaves to the country by electing the very first Democrat in a quarter century. This proved that not all Alabamians are chained to their Confederate past. The downside to it is how narrow the vote was. Doug Jones won by a margin of one percent. This is horrible because of the weakness of the Republican candidate. To be fair, though, with low voter enthusiasm in Alabama, it's not surprise that Democrats had not won since 1992.
Democrats have neglected the forgotten communities that are dedicated to their party's base, specifically African American
communities. The African American electorate in Alabama showed their dedication by showing up in the polls despite facing voter suppression. Therefore a huge shoutout and kudos to African Americans. In particular, votes from 97% of African American women voters clinched the victory for Doug Jones, the Democrat. We can only hope that Alabamians will be more energized in voting in each election from now on, and hopefully in favor of Jones' reelection in 2020.
