Reasons Doug Jones won:
1) he is a good candidate: Alabama native in tune with Alabama values
2) Alabama is changing. Roy Moore represents the worst of Alabama’s stereotyped past. The state remains a conservative state but the business and civic leadership has changed and has been building a modern state for some time, despite the backward political leadership.
3) Strong and well organized African-American leadership both political and civic. The African American vote, particularly women, made the biggest difference and will in the future
4) First Global (millennial) generation voters are determined to build the country they envision and they are taking over in every state. This is just the beginning.
