This thread by Alex Burns, political reporter for the New York Times, was posted Monday evening, before the election of Alabama Democrat Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate. Of course, we all know now how the race turned out, but as people start pointing fingers, it’s a fine recap of the entire process from beginning to end.

Of course, there shouldn’t have been a question that a Republican could lose a Senate race in Alabama in 2017, but one did, and there were plenty of decision points that led to that result.

And again, we all know now how the story turns out.

Yeah, it’s a great game to play substituting Hillary Clinton for Roy Moore.
