Doug Jones' victory in Alabama won't stop the Republican tax overhaul

Doug Jones' victory in Alabama won't stop the Republican tax overhaul

The loss by Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, shrinks the Republicans' Senate majority to 51 in the 100-seat chamber, and reduces Trump's margin for manoeuvre to the bare minimum.

"You can't call yourself the party of family values as long as you're willing to accept vile men like Roy Moore as members", DNC chairman Tom Perez said.

Barkley helped turn out an inspired black vote that proved decisive, despite his history of staying on the political sidelines, outside of some social and commercial stances and provocative proclamations in his role as a sports commentator. In my more despairing moments, I wondered if it had been worth it for them to come forward, stepping into the maelstrom of 2016 only to find out that people cared, but not enough of them, and not passionately enough to change the course of a presidential election. "It's not over", Moore said.

But this time the result is a stunning electoral defeat for Mr. Trump in one of the reddest states in the country and a diminished majority for Republicans in the Senate, putting their entire agenda at risk.

Jones takes over the seat previously held by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And America is more progressive, optimistic, generous, welcoming, innovative, inclusive, young and female than Trump and the minority that currently have the say in Washington.

In an earlier tweet late Tuesday, Trump congratulated Jones on "a hard fought victory". For now, the Republican Party is still the Party of Lincoln, not the Party of Pervs.

Bannon has made no secret of his desire to smash the current GOP order and replace it with a chaotic chorus of flame-throwing populists and ideologically ambiguous partisan agitators. Vice President Mike Pence went so far as to leave an NFL game at the president's direction after players kneeled during the national anthem. Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders tried to distance themselves from Mr. Moore.

Some in Washington began to see Mr Bannon as a potential "king-maker" for the party. "If they (Republicans) continue to run the government for the benefit of the few special powerful wealthy interests, there will be many more Alabamas in 2018".

Some Republicans came to Trump's defense and said the Alabama race was a one-off.

To obtain an automatic recount, lingering ballots - such as those mailed in by military personnel - would first have to reduce Jones's margin of victory.

But the sense of grievance remained, and gained force this fall with the toppling of movie producer Harvey Weinstein and the once-revered figures in media and politics who have been taken down in his wake.

Mr Bannon has recently set his targets on Mr McConnell, whom he views as lukewarm on the president's so-called America First strategy. Brown was in office for the next senate vote on the legislation, which he opposed-but it passed anyway, since Democrats still had 56 votes in the 100-member body. Are we going to see special provisions or deals to get it done. Alabama not only rejected Trump's candidate of choice but it rejected Trump, who lent his name and political capital to a Moore win. Mr Moore denied these allegations, and Mr Trump endorsed him in spite of them.
