Democrat Doug Jones holds a news conference Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET following his Tuesday night win against Republican Roy Moore. Alabama hasn’t sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate in 25 years.

The former U.S. attorney won by a narrow margin in the special election, earning 49.92 percent of the vote while Moore had 48.38 percent.

“I think that I have been waiting all my life and now I just don’t know what the hell to say,” Jones said, taking the stage Tuesday night once his victory had been called.

Moore, who faced a series of allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls, has yet to concede the race.
