Former Alabama senator joining CNN as commentator


Former Democratic Sen. Doug Jones is making his debut as a political commentator on CNN today.

He tweeted that he would join host Jake Tapper as the newest member of the network's political team. Jones is also working as a political and public service fellow at Georgetown University this spring.

Jones was elected to the U.S. Senate in a special election in 2017, replacing Republican Jeff Sessions. He lost his seat in 2020 to Republican Tommy Tuberville.
