Doug Jones will be certified despite Roy Moore’s challenge

December 28, 2017

Doug Jones will be certified despite Roy Moore's challengeAlabama Secretary of State John Merrill threw cold water on Republican Roy Moore’s attempt to postpone certification of the Alabama Senate special election results, saying Democrat Doug Jones will be certified the winner Thursday and sworn in next week.

In an interview on CNN, Merrill, a Republican, was asked whether Moore’s claims of voter fraud had any merit.

“The short answer to that is no,” he said. “Doug Jones will be certified today at 2 p.m. Eastern time, 1 p.m. Central time. The governor, Kay Ivey, our attorney general, Steve Marshall, and I will meet in the office of the secretary of state in the executive office and we will sign the documents certifying him as senator for the state of Alabama. He will be sworn in by Vice President [Mike] Pence on the 3rd of January when the Senate returns.”
