Alabama Certifies Doug Jones as the Senate Election Winner

26
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.
