Even though the numbers show that Democrat Doug Jones was clearly the winner of the U.S. Senate seat the Roy Moore campaign refused to concede and decided instead to wait for the final totals from the campaign to be tabulated.
“Wait on God and let this process play out,” Moore told his supporters.
“May God bless you as you go on, give you safe journey, and thank you for coming tonight,” Moore concluded when he dismissed his campaign watch party. “It’s not over and it’s going to take some time.”
At 11:00 pm, the Alabama Political Reporter and other journalists met with Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill (R) about the vote certification process.
Sec. Merrill said that we still have to count all of the provisional and military ballots and to proces all of the write-ins. Merrill said that a write-in is only valid if it were for someone who is constitutionally eligible. The example he gave is of a cartoon character. If they are not eligible to be Senator that vote would not count in the final tabulation.
