Democratic lawmakers took to Twitter on Tuesday night shortly after The Associated Press called the Alabama Senate special election for Doug Jones.

Jones’s victory is considered a significant upset, as Alabama has not elected a Democrat to the Senate in 25 years.

Jones’s Republican opponent, Roy Moore, was plagued by allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he made advances on teenagers when he was in his 30s.
