Defiant Judge Roy Moore Pulls a Hillary — REFUSES TO CONCEDE in Alabama Senate Election (VIDEO)
Republican Judge Roy Moore refuses to concede the Alabama Senate race. The candidate told his supporters Tuesday night that they have to “Realize when the vote is this close, it is not over.”
We’ve still got to go by the rules about this recount provision,” added Moore.

Independent UK reports:
Roy Moore’s campaign manager has initally said the candidate is not yet conceding the US Senate race to winner Democrat Doug Jones, and is asking his supporters to pray for him.
Rich Hobson told a sombre crowd at Mr Moore’s election night gathering that: “Some people are calling it. We are not calling it.”
Mr Hobson says the margin is thin and there are still votes to be counted – but a concession will likely not be long in coming..[…]
Should Mr Moore prevail, Republicans will be faced with a decision they have spent weeks bracing for: how to treat a new member of their caucus who, despite being crucial to their slender majority, is saddled with politically explosive allegations. In the lead-up to the election senators had discussed launching an ethics investigation or even voting to expel Mr Moore should he win.
