Alabama native, Charles Barkley, couldn't be prouder of his State after Doug Jones, a Democrat, defeated noted creep, Roy Moore, in the Senate race last night.

Barkley, who grew up in Alabama and played hoops at Auburn, said, "Yeah, we got some rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people, but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today."

Barkley had campaigned for Doug Jones leading up to last night's election in Alabama, and he showed his appreciation last night after Jones received 49.92% of the votes, narrowly edging Moore's 48.38%.

Per TMZ Sports, 

"You know, we've been stuck in a time warp for a long time," Charles said ... "This is just a great night for Alabama and for Doug Jones."

"Roy Moore was an embarrassment. Hey listen, if any other man had 8 women accusing him of sexual harassment ... talking about how he really enjoyed slavery ... he thinks people who are homosexuals should go to jail, they wouldn't have even been in this election."

Barkley says he's extremely proud of Alabama ... adding, "We got some amazing people here."

"Yeah, got some rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people ... but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today."

Jones' win gives Republicans just a 51-49 edge in the Senate, and paves the way for Democrats take take back control of the Senate if they can control Arizona and Nevada in their upcoming elections.
