Also at stake is a Senate seat in mega-red Alabama where Democrat Doug Jones will pit himself against the probable candidate, Luther Strange (miracles can happen), or Roy Moore, depending on the upcoming Republican Primary, for Jeff Session's old seat. In Gubernatorial races, Chris Christie is term limited out in 2017, and popular Democrat Phil Murphy looks poised to take his seat. Democrat Terry McAuliffe, also term-limited in Virginia, leaves Dem Ralph Northam in a neck and neck race against Ed Gillespie, former Chair of the RNC. Numerous mayoral races are taking place across the country, and you should check your state to see what's up and VOTEFROMABROAD.ORG
