Jones's unlikely victory in Alabama counts as another positive signal for Democrats heading into 2018. Defecting Republicans defeated legislation repealing Obamacare.
That playbook, she said, "worked for Moore". The Senate's version of the GOP tax plan passed, but it was close. Immigration reform is expected to be on the Senate's agenda.

But even so, Judge Moore, for the last 22 years, basically, has been a very polarizing figure. "They won't have to answer 'Why did you let this guy in?' They won't have to run with him around their necks".
And national Democrats, skittish about appearing too involved in the race, mostly stayed away from the state, with the exception of last-minute stumping by Sen.
"He'd be an oddity in a liberal caucus", Baker said of Jones.
