By  | 

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama and national Democrats see a sliver of hope for victory as Doug Jones prepares to take on Roy Moore in a special election for the U.S. Senate.

Democrat Doug Jones (left), Republican Roy Moore (right) will square off against one another in the Dec. 12, 2017, general election.

Moore is a controversial jurist twice removed from the state Supreme Court for defying federal courts, while Jones is a longtime Democratic player and former federal prosecutor.

National Democrats are eager to help Jones but know that their involvement is tricky in a state where Republicans have dominated for two decades.
