Endangered Dem Ala. Sen. Doug Jones Will NOT Back Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

'Jones is unfit to represent the pro-life, pro-Trump state of Alabama and will be held accountable at the ballot box...'

Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., may have sunk his reelection chances in the conservative state by stating Friday that he will not support a Supreme Court nominee before the November election, The Hill reported.

“I regret that I will not support the confirmation of any Supreme Court justice nominee, regardless of who it might be … before the outcome of the Nov. 3 election has been determined,” Jones said on Facebook Live last week.

He did not definitively state if he would support or oppose President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, during the lame-duck period.

Jones said he will “evaluate any pending or future nominee on their merits and vote for or against the nomination based on that nominee’s qualifications.”

Jones won an unusual 2017 special election for the Alabama Senate seat that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had held before Trump appointed him to lead the Justice Department.

But it is unlikely that he will be able to hold the seat in this year’s general election against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville.

The Susan B. Anthony List opposes Jones’ reelection because of his extreme pro-abortion positions and his vote against the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“During his short time in office, Jones has proven to be an extremist, repeatedly siding against constituents and voting with the most radical members of his party—like Kamala Harris—in favor of abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

With help from corporate media, Jones campaigned and has portrayed himself as a moderate Democrat. However, his votes on many crucial issues have toed the party line and rarely, if ever, broken rank.

Voters have since seen his callous disregard for human life, with his opposition to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would outlaw the murder of unborn babies when they can feel pain at about five months gestation.

“Jones is unfit to represent the pro-life, pro-Trump state of Alabama and will be held accountable at the ballot box,” Dannenfelser said.
