Former Democratic senator from Alabama, Doug Jones will join CNN as a political commentator.
“Very excited to be joining the @CNN team as a political commentator. Tune in this afternoon at 4ET for my ‘official’ debut on @TheLeadCNN with @jaketapper,” Jones tweeted.
Jones lost his re-election bid to Trump-backed candidate, Tommy Tuberville in November. Democrats were still able to regain the majority in the upper chamber despite Jones’ loss.
Jones, who was also on President Biden’s shortlist to serve as attorney general recently called for the Justice Department to investigate everyone who spoke at Donald Trump’s Jan. 6 rally in D.C. that preceded his supporters storming the Capitol.
