“I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent AL by choosing to vote with the Senate Repub Majority,” Gardner said in a statement.

The Associated Press called the race for Jones shortly before 10:30 p.m.

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

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

Gardner had called for Moore’s expulsion if he won.
