Progressive Turnout Project Congratulates Doug Jones on Victory in Alabama
Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan released the following statement after Doug Jones’ victory in Alabama’s Senate election:

“Tonight in Alabama, Democrats won one of the most consequential victories of 2017 by electing Doug Jones to the United States Senate.”

“Alabama voters were presented with a clear choice, and they chose the side of history by electing the son of a steelworker who embodies progressive values.”

“Doug Jones won by presenting voters with an authentic story and platform and by running a strong voter turnout program in key cities across the state.”

“Progressive Turnout Project is proud to have our team on the ground here in Alabama, and we look forward to helping Democrats across the country win up and down the ticket in 2018.”
