Democratic National Committee chief Tom Perez on Wednesday hailed black women voters as being the "backbone" of the party.

Splits available from Tuesday night's stunning upset show that blacks overall turned out, comprising 29 percent of all voters who voted in Tuesday's special election in Alabama.

And Democrat Doug Jones won 96 percent of the black vote, versus 4 percent for Republican Roy Moore.

Further, Jones got 66 percent of the vote from mothers who voted, and 55 percent of the vote from women without children, crushing Moore on both fronts.
