MONTGOMERY — A canvassing board made up of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall and Secretary of State John Merrill certified the results of the 2017 special election Thursday that Doug Jones won on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
Democratic nominee Jones defeated Republican candidate Roy Moore in the special election for the seat in the Senate vacated by Jeff Sessions after he was named Attorney General of the United States.
Moore tried to have the certification blocked on Thursday, but Merrill said Moore’s complaint would not stop the process.
