With wins in Virginia, New Jersey and now Alabama, Democrats appear to have the momentum, and things aren't looking good for Republicans. Then again, Roy Moore wasn't the party's first choice. He is an alleged child abuser and conspiracy theorist, not exactly a hard opponent for Democrats to defeat. What do you think?
