Doug Jones supports partial birth abortion up to the day a baby is delivered.
Democrats and DC Republicans hope Judge Roy Moore will lose after a string of unproven sexual allegations this past week.
NBC News reported:
The Roy Moore scandal has unleashed a torrent of online donations to Democrat Doug Jones, who was collecting around $250,000 per day in its immediate aftermath, according to two sources familiar with the matter who spoke to NBC News on condition of anonymity.
Democrats may end up in the unlikely situation of dramatically outspending the GOP in the Senate contest in deep red Alabama now that national Republicans have abandoned Moore. The Republican candidate’s bank account had been depleted by a tough primary battle even before nine women came forward to accuse him of sexual impropriety.
The scandal has super-charged Jones’ already robust online fundraising to “Ossoff-level money,” as one Democrat put it, referring to failed Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff, who amassed a staggering $30 million in a Georgia special election this year.
Unlike Ossoff, however, who was matched by an equally massive amount of GOP money, Jones’ spending may go unanswered by pro-Moore forces through the Dec. 12 election.
