How 2017's elections gave Democrats a recipe for big midterm wins
The stunning upset by Mr Jones makes him the first Democrat elected to the US Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century and will trim the Republicans' already narrow Senate majority to 51-49, endangering President Donald Trump's agenda and opening the door for Democrats to possibly retake the Chamber in next year's congressional elections. Democrats, on the other hand, are anxious that his political posturing could delay Jones' arrival to the Senate, where he could be a key vote against the GOP tax bill.
Alabama's Republican Senator Richard Shelby, who refused to support Mr Moore, told AFP he hoped Mr Bannon would bow out of politics, but did not think he would.
"Don't let the Republican handwringing distract from the fact that the strategic missteps Mitch McConnell and his allies made in Alabama led to Roy Moore's nomination", the memo says.
As the battle plays out in states including Nevada, Arizona and Kentucky, Mr John Geer, who chairs Vanderbilt University's political science department, said of Mr Bannon: "He is willing to lose some elections to leave his stamp on the party".

It's "highly unlikely" that Jones would not be officially declared the victor of the election, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN.
"I'm not sure what his posturing is about, other than it keeps him in the limelight and it keeps him relevant for another week", said Sewell.
The results of Alabama's Senate race will be certified between December 26 and January 3 after counties report their official totals. State laws say that a recount only is needed if the margin is within half a percentage point. Trump on Friday said that he believed Moore should concede the race. Moore said his campaign is collecting "numerous reported cases of voter fraud" to send to the secretary of state's office. "This election was tainted by over $50 million from outside groups who want to retain power and their corrupt ideology".
