Alabama Certified Doug Jones As The Winner Of Its Special Election

Democrat’s Senate Majority PAC heavily funded Doug Jones’ campaign			 0					By		Elizabeth Lauten

"We'll find that out because as I mentioned, there are at least 650,000 votes - forget all the fraud for a moment - 650,000 people despite all the fraudulent allegations came out and voted for Judge Moore and they are watching very closely as well as the country on whether or not he'll do his job and investigate" the claims made by the campaign.

The State Canvassing Board certified the December election's results after a judge on Thursday denied Moore's request to to halt the process.

Jones is scheduled to be sworn in as the junior senator from Alabama next week.

Jones said he's looking forward to "going to work for the people of Alabama in the new year".

Minutes before the Alabama election canvassing board met to certify the result, a circuit judge in Montgomery County denied Republican Roy Moore's last-ditch request for a temporary restraining order to prevent certifying Jones as victor. In addition to the court filing, Moore is asking his supporters to call Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and Attorney General Steve Marshall and ask them to delay certification of the vote.

Alabama's new U.S. Senator will take office just after the new year, according to Secretary of State John Merrill.

He takes over the seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and his term expires in January 2021.

Alabama Republican Roy Moore has filed an election complaint to block certification of the Senate vote he narrowly lost early this month, alleging that election fraud occurred that was "sufficient to overturn the outcome of the election" and calling for an investigation.

Alabama election officials have officially declared Democrat Doug Jones the victor of a special Senate election held earlier this month.

Alabama's election canvassing board is scheduled to meet at 1 p.m. Thursday to certify the election result. The election results will be certified at 1 p.m. CST.

Moore filed a lawsuit Wednesday raising broad claims of election fraud.

"As I said on election night, our victory marks a new chapter for our state and the nation", he said. The accusations of sexual misconduct on the part of Moore were also addressed in the complaint, which claimed that the candidate had passed a polygraph test.

Janet Porter, a Moore spokeswoman, said earlier on CNN that the chances of voter fraud not having an effect on the election were astronomically low. He said Moore's complaint seemed to boil down to the belief that he should have won based on exit polling and that the high turnout, including by African-American voters, must indicate fraud.

"This election has been conducted with the utmost integrity", Merrill told a news conference.

The election result was a blow to President Trump, who gave Mr Moore his full-throated support, even as other Republicans distanced themselves following the misconduct allegations.

The win narrowed the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate to 51-49 - a margin which political observers say could complicate efforts to move GOP-backed legislation through Congress in 2018.
