Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) says he'll support whoever his party nominates to oppose President Donald Trump in next year's election. "Whatever we do, we'll end up supporting the (Democratic) nominee. I'm not going to run away from that," said Jones, during a Thursday appearance in Huntsville. Jones also indicated his preference for former Vice President Joe Biden. Political observers say Jones's open-ended support for the Democratic presidential field, which has been running hard to the left, will be a liability in a red state like Alabama, where President Trump's popularity remains high.
