Few options for Roy Moore as Alabama certifies Jones win

December 30, 2017

With Alabama officials certifying Doug Jones’ win in the U.S. Senate election, Republican Roy Moore has few options left to turn back a defeat that he has yet to concede.

The state’s Republican governor, secretary of state and attorney general on Thursday certified Jones’ win by 21,924 votes, a margin of 1.6 percent, over Moore. Jones is scheduled to be sworn in on Jan. 3, when Congress returns from break. Jones’ win came after Moore was dogged by accusations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls that occurred decades ago.

In a Thursday statement, Moore seemed close — or at least closer — to acknowledging his loss but stood by his assertion of fraud in the election that saw him battling both deep-pocketed Democrats and establishment Republicans.

“I have stood for the truth about God and the Constitution for the people of Alabama,” he said in a statement. “I have no regrets. To God be the glory.”
