Statement by Chairman Zody on the Alabama Senate Race

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody released the following statement today following Democratic candidate Doug Jones’ win in Alabama last night:

“Last night, we saw why Congressmen Messer’s and Rokita’s decision to limp behind President Trump and the National Republican party was both morally reprehensible and politically foolish. Doug Jones’ victory was a reminder of the importance of fighting for every seat, in every state, and how much fired-up Democrats can accomplish at the grassroots—but it was also a reminder that our public officials should never put their politics so far above their country that they’re willing to support men like Roy Moore. Hoosier voters will remember that the people of Alabama rejected an alleged pedophile with pro-slavery views, but Congressmen Messer and Rokita wouldn’t.”
