While Roy Moore was the talk around the Eastern Shore Tuesday night, supporters of Doug Jones were working on his behalf in the Port City.
The Bay Area Young Democrats hosted a showing of the documentary "4 Little Girls." They're taking every avenue to convince people to vote for Jones come December 12. They say Doug Jones' involvement in the case speaks to his character. That's something they say is unmatched in this election.
"A very good person that's looking to do what's right for everybody," said Alabama House District 98 Representative Napoleon Bracy, Jr.
"He wants to work for the common man. Not just a few," added Democrat and Jones supporter Nina Ford-Johnson.
Supporters of Doug Jones and those who are on the fence met tonight at Kazoola for the showing. "4 Little Girls" is a documentary about the 1963 church bombing at 16th Street Baptist church that claimed the lives of 4 black girls in Birmingham. Jones was one of the prosecutors in this case.
"Doug Jones was a voice for the voiceless at a time when people needed that voice and they needed that justice. He provided that voice for those little girls and if it was any of our children we would all want the same," said Representative Bracy.
Nina Ford-Johnson who's a Democrat says the distinction between the two candidates is clear.
"Doug Jones is willing to work with everybody. With all walks of life. He's willing to put the humanity back in politics," she said. "I don't feel like he (Moore) can relate to everyone. That person who's a steelworker or to the mom and pop business owner, or to the physician, or to the single mother. He can't relate to them but I believe Doug Jones can."
Bracy didn't want to comment specifically on the accusations but had this to say about it all.
"We just want to show people that we have had an alternative, we don't want to say anything bad about Judge Moore, we'll let that play out on their side, that's for him to defend," he said.
As we get closer and closer to election day, The Young Democrats of the Bay Area say they'll continue joining Jones' campaign in efforts to gain voters.
