President Donald Trump is predicting a GOP Senate victory in Alabama following Democrat Doug Jones’ vote at the impeachment trial.
Trump in a Tweet on Sunday lashed out at Jones as a “lightweight” and called his vote to convict “partisan.”
“So good to see that Republicans will be winning the Great State of Alabama Senate Seat back,” Trump wrote.
Lizzie Grams, a spokeswoman for Jones’ campaign, said the senator declined to comment. In a statement after his vote, Jones said he “reluctantly concluded” that the evidence was sufficient to convict Trump of both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
