Getting Things Done with Senator Doug Jones

In 2018 Doug Jones won a special election to replace Jeff Sessions in the United States Senate. Since then, he’s been one of the few members who can reach across the aisle and find common ground on important issues affecting veterans, access to healthcare, and more. Doug’s a moderate, and a former prosecutor who tried the people who bombed the 16th street Baptist Church in Birmingham. He’s up for reelection in 2020, and he joined Alyssa Milano to make the case as to why he is the right person to continue to represent Alabama in the senate.
