It was one of the most talked about, fiery, controversial — and at times disturbing — Senate races in recent history. And finally, it's over.
In what can only be described as a huge upset, Democrat Doug Jones defeated Republican Judge Roy Moore in a special election that, at times, felt more like a Jerry Springer episode than a race for Senate.
