The consequential special election for U.S. Senate in Alabama reaches its conclusion tonight. Republican candidate Roy Moore, under fire after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct, faces Democratic candidate Doug Jones, an abortion extremist who opposes a ban on abortion after the 20th week of gestation.
The winner of this special election will take office to finish the term of former U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, who left the Senate to serve as attorney general in the Trump administration. The next general election for this Senate seat will take place in 2020.
