Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones took to Twitter on Tuesday to celebrate his stunning victory over Republican rival Roy Moore in Alabama’s special election.

Jones’s victory is seen as a huge upset, as he’s the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in the state since 1992.
His victory came as Moore faced numerous allegations from women who claimed the Republican candidate had made sexual advances on them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.
