Alabama Election: Roy Moore Refuses To Concede Defeat

Alabama Republican candidate Roy Moore has refused to concede defeat in the US Senate election that he lost on Tuesday.

“When the vote is this close, it is not over,” Moore told supporters after US television networks projected Doug Jones the shock winner of the election in the deeply conservative state of Alabama.

“The votes are still coming in,” the Christian conservative said, referring to ballots of military personnel. “God is always in control.”

Moore signalled that he would call for a recount.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN that it would be “highly unlikely” at this point that a recount would change the result of the election.
