There is a new Senator in Alabama, and many were shocked when it was not the Republican Roy Moore getting the victory, but instead his Democratic opponent Doug Jones who will be packing his bags for Washington.
Jim Bohannon hosts the Jim Bohannon show heard weeknights on Newstalk WTIM, and says although Jones won this particular election, he doesn't expect him to hold his senate seat for long.
The Moore campaign was rocked by a number of allegations of sexual misconduct, in some cases with women who were underage at the time. Bohannon says these allegations likely cost Moore the election, saying although he may not have been convicted in a court of law, that doesn't influence the court of public opinion.
You can tune into the Jim Bohannon Show weeknights on Newstalk WTIM. Bohannon appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
