Roy Moore lost the election for the Alabama senate race in last Tuesday's election. The Republican candidate has since refused to acknowledge the loss and has yet to concede to his challenger.
Now, Moore is explaining why he refuses to concede. He says that despite the media, and President Trump acknowledging the results, he believes the final tally is not in yet.
Moore is banking on "thousands" of uncounted ballots. He believes the military and provisional ballots that have yet to be counted could make a difference in the tight race, which could swing the election in his favor.
“In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots,” said Moore, who is a Vietnam War veteran and West Point graduate. “This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state.”
Moore and his campaign staff released a video explaining why he has decided to wait to concede. To see his statement, watch the video below.
At this time, Jones has won the election by a 1.5% margin. The margin breaks down to about 20,000 votes. Which leaves an extremely unlikely chance for Moore to pull out a victory.
"Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told AL.com ballots continue to come in from military personnel and other Alabamians overseas. The deadline is noon on Tuesday, Dec. 19, and those ballots, along with provisional ballots, will then be counted," according to reports.
