WATCH: Montgomery schoolteacher shuns Roy Moore and casts first vote for Democrat in 20 years
Montgomery, Alabama schoolteacher Amanda Adams said on Tuesday that she cast her first ballot for a Democrat in 20 years because she could not bring herself to vote for accused child molester Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race.
In an interview with NBC campaign embed Vaughn Hillyard, Adams said that she was turning her back on the Republican Party.
“Normally, I’m a Republican voter and today I voted for [Democratic candidate] Doug Jones,” Adams told Hillyard.
Adams said that she almost wrote in a friends name but decided Jones was the better choice.
“I gave it some thought, I chose Doug Jones,” she concluded.
