BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) - Doug Jones arrived Tuesday night to greet supporters at the Five Bar diner in Birmingham. He says he's cautiously optimistic about the primary results, despite the reports of a low turnout.
Jones is among eight Democratic candidates hoping to win the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate in Alabama.
Campaign officials say polls show Jones is the front-runner by a large margin.
Jones is a former U.S. Attorney who made a name for himself by prosecuting two members of the Ku Klux Klan for their role in the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham that killed four girls.
