CDP Chair Statement on Doug Jones Victory in Alabama

Los Angeles—California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in reaction to the election of Doug Jones in Alabama: 

"There are no words capable of describing the magnitude of tonight's results. This was not just a stunning victory by Doug Jones or an extraordinary slap in the face of Donald Trump, who went all in for Roy Moore these last few days.  It was a triumph of justice, common sense, and basic human decency. And in the most telling sign of all, this was a victory powered by monumental turnout in African American communities, and the extraordinary solidarity of Alabama's women and young voters. Democrats in Alabama, aided by Labor Unions, Indivisible groups and Democrats from the DNC to grassroots Democrats across the country - including many in California - scored a powerful victory for the resistance tonight.”
