Once again I thank African Americans

I am reminded that they never, ever bit when Trump tried to grab them with his anti-Mexican rants and anti-Muslim rants. I know more AA Church-going Christians and none of them went for that "other" crap. Thank you from America!

2. The biggest thing I think we need to remember is Doug Jones *earned* the vote.

He worked his campaign. He talked to voters. He had a solid strategy.

But he also brought justice to the four little girls in that Birmingham church bombing, after people knew there was no way only one man pulled it off... long after people thought the rest would ever be caught, let alone convinced. There are heavily blue counties with nearly 60% turnout. They never forget those little girls. Neither did Doug Jones.

We need to keep earning the vote.

As corny as it sounds that needs to be the Democratic theme in 2018.

8. You bet. Alabama's PoC did themselves and the nation proud.

They are, also, of course, part of the women and young voter blocs who are also credited with this much needed victory.
