GOP candidate Roy Moore is refusing to concede the Alabama senate race.
“God is always in control,” the judge said during a speech to supporters on Tuesday night. The state of Alabama mandates a recount whenever there is a .5% margin between leading opponents.
Jones appears to have won the race by at least a full percentage point or more, though the Moore campaign is citing the uncounted military vote as a wait-and-see factor.
More from Breitbart:
Moore cited Psalm 40:2 to give his supporters hope:
“I waited patiently for the Lord. He inclined to me, heard my cry, brought us up out of a horrible pit out of the mirey clay and set my feet on the rock and established my goings and put a new song in our mouth.”
“Wait on God and let this process play out,” Moore added.
A Moore staffer urged supporters to wait, noting that the military votes had yet to be counted. Moore is about 22,000 votes short, but it is uncertain whether the uncounted votes tally up to that number.
“May God bless you as you go on, give you safe journey, and thank you for coming tonight,” Moore concluded. “It’s not over and it’s going to take some time.”
The election is scheduled to be certified by the Alabama Secretary of State by Christmas, but a recount throws that result into question.
Doug Jones is scheduled to be sworn into the Senate in early January.
Do you think there should be a recount in Alabama?
Perhaps it would make Jones fight for a while before rushing to Capitol Hill to cast liberal votes!
