Roy Moore's Jewish Lawyer: I'm 'Passionate Supporter' Of Doug Jones

Jaffe also said that he was there by Jones' side when the senator-elect delivered his acceptance speech and plans to be at the Senate when Jones is sworn into the chamber tomorrow.

Former Vice President Joe Biden accompanied Jones, who won a December special election to fill the seat vacated almost a year ago by current Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It was a contentious battle for the seat of former GOP Sen. Luther Strange, who was appointed to hold the seat after Sessions became attorney general.

Roy Moore's pugnacious stubbornness to accept the results of the election may fire up his supporters, but it does lasting damage to the fabric of our nation. "That is a nonstarter", Jones said.

"Senator Doug Jones' swearing in today was a historic landmark for Alabama voters", said Sewell on Wednesday. There's no question about that ... "Now it's time to move on and go to the next thing".

Biden joked with Jones' two sons during the photo op and told reporters that it was "good to be back".

- The President and First Lady will be in Atlanta next Monday as the guest of Mike Pence's Chief of Staff, who is a Georgia native.

The arrival of Smith and Jones on Capitol Hill highlighted the extent to which the #MeToo movement has swept over Washington.

When Jones takes office, he will reduce the already slim Republican majority. Moore of course also came under fire when he was accused by nine women of numerous acts of sexual misconduct, including child sexual assault.

That is why his ranch will also seek to advance research into the potential benefits of medicinal marijuana, specifically CBD. The Tyson ranch will also have its own amphitheatre, complete with luxury camping area and cabins.

But on most key issues, like health care, gay rights and gun control, Jones' views are in line with those of many other Democrats.

The new Senator was flanked by her family, Sen.

Sending a Democrat from Alabama to the Senate only gives Republicans a two-vote margin.

During the Alabama Senate race, the wife of now-defeated Republican candidate Roy Moore cited a Jewish lawyer employed by the couple while defending her husband from accusations of bigotry.

The balance of power in the Senate will change from 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats-to 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats.

Like he did during his campaign, Jones is expected to keep his focus on issues affecting his state rather than becoming mired in national political debates.

A large contingent from Birmingham and Alabama attended the ceremony including Congresswoman Terri Sewell; Mayor Randall Woodfin; former U.S. Attorney in Alabama Joyce Vance and Alabama House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to have a partner in Congress, " Sewell said after the ceremony. "I am looking forward to getting my feet wet and getting to know my colleagues and jumping into the action".
