On the Democratic side of things tonight in Alabama, Doug Jones and Robert Kennedy, Jr are expected to clear the top two and advance to a runoff. Many state party Democrats are pushing Jones, who has received the endorsements of Congresswoman Terri Sewell, Congressmen John Lewis and Tim Ryan, and former Vice President Joe Biden.
