By Alex Seitz-Wald,

In a stunning conclusion to a contest that received international attention, Democrat Doug Jones is the projected winner over Republican Roy Moore in the Senate race in this deeply conservative state, according to an NBC News projection.

It took an extraordinary alignment of events, including a sex scandal involving teenagers, for Alabamians to elect their first Democrat to the Senate in 25 years, but they triggered a political earthquake that will be felt far and wide.

With 99 percent of the vote in, Jones was leading 50-48 percent, or 673,236 votes to 652,300 votes — a margin of more than 20,000.
