Democrat Doug Jones had a narrow victory last night over Republican Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama. The race came down to the wire, and just before the winner was known Paul Krugman had the Dem talking points all ready to go in case the election didn’t fall their way:
Totally unclear who will win AL. But it's so close that if Moore does win, voter suppression will have made the difference.
