13. He's the closest to a progressive that's ever won an Alabama Senate seat.

 

The only figure who was even remotely comparable was Lister Hill-who supported some social programs(while remaining a segregationist, of course-he was in from the late Thirties to the late Sixties.

Doug Jones is extremely liberal by Alabama standards, and is probably a marker that greater change is coming in that state's politics.
