Doug Jones’s win in a part of the Deep South that has not elected a Democratic senator since 1992 left Republicans picking through the wreckage after a blow that showcased voter backlash to sexual misconduct allegations and the limits of President Trump’s influence.
Trump, who supported the losing candidates in both the GOP primary and on Tuesday, defended his record by saying he knew Roy Moore would lose. “Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” Trump tweeted.
The Take
Analysis
The race brought together much of today's political debates, from the popularity and influence of the president to the fractured GOP to the issue of sexual harassment. For Republicans, it was a bad night, no matter how it was measured.
Roy Moore’s defeat in the Tuesday special election may have come as a relief to liberal Americans, but in Europe it was taken as a sign that the United States has not totally lost its moral compass.

Analysis
Doug Jones’s upset is every bit as shocking as when a Republican won the late Ted Kennedy’s seat in a Massachusetts special election seven years ago.
GOP leaders reached an agreement that would lower the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, two people briefed on the discussions said, part of a compromise on a $1.5 trillion tax plan they hope to vote into law by next week.
The agreement would also lower the top tax rate for families and individuals to 37 percent, a change that would deliver a major tax cut for upper-income households.
The central bank lifted its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point to a range of 1.25 to 1.5 percent, a widely expected move that the Fed said is happening because America’s economy continues to improve.
Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee that he had not seen good cause to fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III amid questions over whether bias might have infected the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
A day after President Trump called her out in a tweet, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) pushed back in an appearance on the “Today” show, repeatedly returning the conversation to the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against the president.

The Switch
Analysis

One of the most powerful women in the world is closing out her tenure with a track record that arguably puts her among the best leaders the Federal Reserve has ever had.
On a visit to the Oval Office, Mark Burns — who once asked God to help Donald Trump “defeat the liberal Democratic Party” — recently defeated another potential Trump foe: a white spider the size of a half-dollar on the president’s back.
