Senator-elect Doug Jones (D-Ala.) discussed his recent special election win with Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."

Jones, the first Democrat elected to the Senate from the Yellowhammer State since the 1990s, said he won't necessarily conform to the party line.

"It doesn't matter what the issue is. [There's] always opportunity to find common ground," he said. "I have just resisted trying to put labels on myself."

Regarding the tax plan, Jones said he supports corporate tax cuts and hiking the standard deduction, but said he disagrees with the sum it adds to the deficit.

He thanked President Trump for his kind personal phone call, and said he hopes to work with both parties on what is best for Alabama.

Jones said he opposes Trump's wall for cost reasons, and said he wants a more permanent version of the DACA program.

Wallace asked Jones about comments his opponent, Judge Roy Moore (R), made after the election.

Moore said that America no longer recognizes that "God is the author of our life," and said "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" have been replaced by "abortion, sodomy and materialism."

Jones said Moore's post-election comments and actions are "hurting" the political process, suggesting that it is "time to move on."

Wallace also asked about any ideological similarities Jones has with his late mentor, Sen. Howell Heflin (D-Ala.) - the last Democrat to represent the state.
