Watch here for live Alabama Senate special election results and exit polls Republican Roy Moore, the embattled former chief justice on the state's supreme court, and Democrat Doug Jones, a widely respected former U.S. attorney, are running for Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat today in a special election that's being watched closely across the country. Polls open at 8 a.m. ET and closed at 8 p.m. ET. That's 7 a.m. local time and 7 p.m. local time. Polling in the race isn't much of a predictor.

We watched her get him in the car and there was a lot of physical fighting in the car. It looked like she was hitting him as well,

Utah athletic director Chris Hill opened his front door and was greeted by his wife, Kathy, bubbling over with excitement. “Red alert,” she screamed. “Urban’s coming!

The prominent Manhattan surgeon found dead in his Upper East Side apartment Sunday with a knife sticking out of his chest was sued last year by a former Giants running back who claimed the doctor ended his football career.
