Alabama officials certified Democrat Doug Jones as winner of special Senate election, despite fraud claims from Roy Moore. He will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on January 3 when the Senate returns.
Moore refused to concede in the wake of the election result. On Wednesday, he filed an election complaint alleging voter fraud may have occurred, calling for a delay in the certification of the results that declared Jones officially the winner and asked for a new special election.
Once sworn in Doug Jones will be one more vote solidifying Democratic opposition to the presidents agenda.
