Doug Jones is the junior senator from Alabama. A Democrat, he promises to fight to increase access to affordable health care for every Alabamian and to ensure that every child has access to high-quality education. Jones is a graduate of the University of Alabama and Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. He worked as a congressional staffer and then as a federal prosecutor before moving to private practice. President Clinton appointed Jones U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. His most prominent case was the successful prosecution of two Ku Klux Klan members for the 1963 Birmingham church bombing that killed four African-American girls. In 2017 Jones ran for the U.S. Senate, defeating former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. Jones has been described as a "moderate Democrat." He emphasizes "kitchen table" issues such as healthcare and the economy and calls for bipartisan solutions. He opposes mandatory three-strike laws for non-violent offenses. He is pro-choice and has pledged to support Planned Parenthood. He also supports same-sex marriage. He favors some gun control measures such as tighter background checks for gun sales and raising the age requirement to purchase a gun to 21. He has agreed to improve border security but opposes the “national emergency.” He opposes repeal of the Affordable Care Act but has called for changes to the U.S. health-care system, which he describes as “broken.” Jones and his wife Louise have three children. He is a member of the Methodist Church.
