Let's get right to that breaking news. The Democrat, Doug Jones, defeats joy Moore in the deep red state of Alabama and, guys, make no mistake about it. May have been in the state of alaba Alabama but it will play out all across the country. Jones saying last night we have shown the country the way that we can be unified but still no concession speech from Roy Moore. The final vote, we must say, was extremely close. It appears that women played a crucial role. They made the difference for Jones over Moore. More fallout for the me too movement and Tom llamas in Montgomery with the latest. Good morning, Tom. Reporter: George, good morning to you. Let me set the scene. It was 9:30 local last night when the Moore came room suddenly fell silent.
