In a late-night speech to supporters, Alabama Republican Roy Moore refused to concede, telling the crowd when the “vote is this close…it’s not over.” Earlier, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a major upset in Tuesday’s special election, becoming the first Democrat since 1992 to be voted into the Senate from the deeply conservative state. … With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Jones had 49.9 percent to Moore’s 48.4 percent. Moore said the campaign was looking into the state’s “recount provision.” However, other Republicans already accepted the outcome. In a tweet, President Trump congratulated Jones on his “hard fought victory.” Still, Jones’ apparent victory over Moore will soon narrow the GOP’s lead in the Senate to a slim 51-49 majority and pose potential complications for Trump’s agenda.
