In a video statement released Wednesday night, GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore refused to concede, emphasizing the closeness of the race:
“In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots,” he said.
“This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the Secretary of State….
This election was tainted by over $50 million dollars from outside groups who want to retain power and their corrupt ideology. No longer is this about Republican or Democratic control. It has truly been said that there is not a dime’s worth of difference between them. It is about a Washington establishment which will not listen to the cries of its citizenry — and the battle rages on.”

“We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilization and our religion and to set free a suffering humanity,” said Moore.
“Today, we no longer recognize the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty. Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Speaking to TODAY on Thursday, Democrat Doug Jones, the winner of the race, claimed, “It’s time to move on.”
“I mean this is – every race is tough. It’s bitter sometimes. I think this one was one that people of Alabama have now spoken a little bit, and they decided to heal. Our campaign has been about that. It’s been about trying to find common ground and heal. And I think he would do well to just go ahead, let’s get this behind us, so the people of Alabama can get someone in there and start working for them.”
A guy who said that gay people should be jailed. A guy who said that the country was stronger under slavery. A guy who said that the country would be better if no amendments after the 10th were enacted.
The 13th ended slavery
The 14th gave Due process and equal protection
The 15th gave blacks the right to vote
The 17th says the people and not the legislature gets to elect Senators
The 19th Gave women the right to vote
The 24th makes it illegal to keep people levy a poll tax on people to vote
THAT is what Roy Moore says is bad for the country. Yeah, he’s a typical Republican.
No wonder the black community came together and voted against this racist clown.
Yo, clown. Name one other republican elected at a federal level who agrees with Moore on those points. Just one.
Jared maybe not on every point, but there are lots of Republicans at the federal level that have expressed simliar views on many of these issues. Ted Cruz said there were no mass shootings when gays stayed hidden. Steve King just quoted white supremacists and said Diversity is not America’s strength, Ben Carson considers abortion similar to slavery. Do we need to talk about Donald Trump’s views on gays, women, transgendered citizens? The strategy of Republicans to make it more difficult for people in black communities to vote is just a modern version of repealing the 15th amendment. There are examples all over Washington.
Just a thought here sweetie, but …..
HOW ABOUT THE 49% of Alabama who voted for the guy?
How about the Republican elected officials that supported him?
How about the Republican PAC that gave him money?
How about the President who made Robo-calls for Moore and held a rally just outside of Mobile to whip up support for him?
You mean other than them?
Well, since Trump gave Moore his full-throated endorsement, then I think Trump qualifies.
Hmmm… you know, if there were no amendments enacted after the first 10, that would mean Hillary Clinton would be VICE president!
Look up the 12th Amendment. (If there were no 19th, she might have still been able to vote for herself if NY State allowed it.)
It reminds me of how Ann Coulter said that Trump would have won the popular vote in a landslide if voting were restricted to those voters with no immigrant grandparents. That’s quite an “if” but of course that would preclude Trump from voting since ALL FOUR of his grandparents were immigrants. But logic is not right-wingers’ strong suit.
After beating anti-LGBT Roy Moore, Doug Jones’ son comes out as gay.
What a pathetic little charlatan. Gurl doesn’t even know how to ride a horse.
So true! The joker can’t ride a horse! Maybe because she squeals, pleads, and backs away from him, near tears, in the stall. We noticed how he had no empathy for Sassy, just as he had no empathy for his prepubescent paramours.
When a red neck bible-thumper can’t even beat a Democrat in Alabama he is the poster child for failure and irrelevancy.
Yup like most Republicans. Clown.
paul dorian lord fredine
he probably thinks he can drag this out until he hears from god that the numbers show him being the real winner. somebody is going to have to eventually tell him that he’s still lost plus it’s been decided he’s an asshole. god may not say that but i will. gladly.
That little voice in your head, saying you are God’s chosen one, is just your own delusion and not the voice of God. It’s time to disappear into obscurity crazy Roy.
The GOP trolls on here are hilarious. Like Leobaga who was making excuses. Trump fully backed Roy Moore and that is why he lost. Donny has a nearly 50% disapproval rating in Alabama. That’s pretty bad.
Stop the excuses. Next year the bigoted GOP will lose 80-90 seats in the House and lose control of the Senate. It will be a bloodbath.
Also, most Republicans are a lot like Moore and espouse similar social viewpoints.
I do need to add.. there was a combination of factors that caused Moore to lose such as child molestation, but this represents the GOP quite well.
Him refusing to concede doesn’t surprise me. If I’m not mistaken when they removed him from the State Supreme Court, the Court packed his belongings and removed them from the building after several months because he refused to accept he had been removed. He’s the type that thinks he’s always right regardless of how wrong he is.
That will be the same thing Trump will do when he loses bigly in 2020.
I love it. All he talks about is “God” has plans for him and he listens to “God’s” advice…. yada yada.
Well apparently “God” says you’re not fit to serve, a-hole. So quit crying cuz Alabama says Bye Boo, Bye!
Bad looser! Even without the alleged sex abuses this is not some one you should give your vote!
Luckily his “strongest” supporters live in the northern part of Alabama. In suburban Alabama many Republican voters decided not to vote or to vote for the Democrats. Good riddance of that bigot!
I’m surprised the usual suspects have not posted on this thread yet; possibly drinking their sorrows away in mom’s basement?
or dunking boxes of democratic votes into the river, Indiana-style.
I’m just relieved he didn’t win. And Omarosa,was dragged cussing from the White House after getting fired. Two early xmas presents. (I know the Omarosa thing is rumor but I love it! When Robin Roberts said Bye, Felcia, on GMA this morning, I rolled)
This man and all the others like him need to die already. This old political guard is so out of touch with reality its almost amusing. I hope with the next generation of politicians, religion will become less prevalent and free thinking will be the name of the game
Roy Moore isn’t my favorite guy but his words on economic freedom are spot on. Look at the trouble California is in due to it’s far left policies. https://www.therainbowright.com/california-crises/
You are a tool. California is one of the brightest economic spots in the US. I know because I live there. $2.4 trillion economy, strong job growth and a stable financial situation.
You know you sound insane, right? Oh wait, no, you’re quoting FauxNews, which is a fakenews propaganda site. California will have a budget surplus and growing economy next year. It has moved to 5th in the world. In the world. Please wake up!
Well Roy, you lost because of your sexual, pedophile molesting and your bigotry. Obviously, Doug Jones whose son is gay is blessed and supported by our loving God. Your negative comments are about yourself, not us.
Roy lost because of his loveless attitudes as explained here —
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing anymore, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men……..Matthew 5:13
Trampled under foot by men! That’s what usually happens to them and their hateful messages.
Loveless antagonism by gay haters and tasteless salt are the same things.
…have the qualities of [good] salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other……Jesus……Mark 9:50 [brackets mine]
Here’s another good attitude for him to practice in the future —
‘In everything’, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for ‘this fulfills’ the law and the prophets………Matthew 7:12
Right wing gays… Go away. Including notright. Apparently you are never right. Keep licking Republican boots. Oh and California is doing fine economically. Alabama and Kansas are in the gutter.
