The U.S. Senate election may be over, for now, but plenty of people are talking about the results.

Democrat Doug Jones won the election by more than 20,000 votes over Republican Roy Moore.

Wednesday morning, in downtown Montgomery, FOX 10 News asked people what they thought about the results.

Jean Norris said, "Just what the Lord wanted it to be. We've got to pray for them."

David Smith said, "Yeah, Doug Jones: I think he's going to do a pretty good job. I believe he'll represent the people of America like they should be. He's got the potential of helping, not just white, black, but everybody."

Mitch Ward said, "I think if the Republicans would have gotten somebody that was a lot better candidate they would have won handily. And the people of Alabama spoke."

John Morgan said, "I'm glad the election is over. It was the most divisive, I guess, biggest hoopla, election Alabama has seen in a long time. I think the right person won. It's the only election I voted in lately that, no matter who you voted for, you lost."

Clarence LaFitte said, "Well, I'm happy. I'm happy over it. I wanted it to go the way it went last night."

Now, everyone's eyes will be on Doug Jones as he goes to work in Washington for the people of Alabama.
