Roland Martin: What Will Doug Jones Do Now?

Dismiss

Doug Jones has been elected as the democratic Senator-elect in Alabama after a close and drama filled race. Even after winning, Roy Moore refuses to concede but Jones continues to look toward the future. Roland Martin talks with Jones about the election and the future.

It’s no secret that African-Americans came out to vote and were responsible for helping Jones win.

‘No question about it, I mean it was an incredible effort. It was a combination of as they say boots on the ground and a massive effort on knocking on the doors,” explained Jones. “Leaders across the state who got behind the campaign. And the messages that we were talking about.”

Since African-Americans were the main impetus for getting Jones elected, Martin asks if his new staff will reflect the people that voted for him.

“Absolutely, we have started the process of gathering our resumes. You know I’ll be honest with you,” expressed Joens.  “The one great thing really for me that has been so gratifying is that with all the attention that this race has garnered we’re attracting some really top talent from both within Alabama and outside the state.”

  1. That Doug Jones character now says he’s not going to be in lock step with the dems. Have the Alabamians been bambozelled before he gets to Washington. One thing about the thugs, no matter what, they all fall in line They were going to support the pedphile just because he would have helped them to pass their agenda.
