MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore doubled down on his claims of voter irregularities in a last-ditch effort to stop the certification of the Democratic opponent who pulled off a historic upset last month in a traditionally deep-red state.
Moore asked a judge late Wednesday to issue a restraining order to stop Alabama's canvassing board from certifying Doug Jones' victory on Thursday. Secretary of State John Merrill told The Associated Press that Moore's action "is not going to delay certification and Doug Jones ... will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on the third of January."
