>> Received the final count to include military->> Roy Moore's last ditch effort to challenge his opponent's victory in the Alabama Senate race has fallen on deaf ears. And those ears belong to Alabama Secretary of State, John Merrill. Who, on Thursday, met with the State Canvassing Board to certify Democrat Doug Jones as the state's next US Senator.
Moore had filed a last minute complaint to block the certification. Claiming that the December 12th special election against Jones was tainted by voter fraud and has not been adequately investigated. Moore lost in a deeply divisive race by just over 20,000 votes. Upended by allegations he pursued teenage girls while in his 30s.
He has denied any wrongdoing and Reuters has not been able to independently verify the claims. Moore is the first Republican to lose a US Senate race in Alabama in 25 years. He has defied repeated calls to concede the election, even from President Trump, who endorsed him.>> Important for the country to get a vote next week.
