21 Dec Mollineau: Black Alabamians carried Doug Jones to victory — and it should be a warning to Democrats for 2018
December 19, 2017
Rodell Mollineau, a DC-based Democratic strategist, echoed Barkley.
“I’ve always been critical of the party and of individual politicians of not doing more to engage with these voters in off years,” Mollineau said. “I don’t care where you’re from: If you’re looking at 2020 and you’re not starting this process now, then good luck to you.”
Mollineau says not every election will pit someone like Jones, who has a connection to Alabama’s black community in part as a result of his work prosecuting Ku Klux Klan members, against someone like Moore, who has ties to white supremacist groups and a long record of racist beliefs.
