Moore remains hopeful, says battle for Alabama seat "rages on"

14 December 2017

Republican candidate Roy Moore still had not conceded defeat after a bitter fight with his Democratic opponent. This is the very first time that a Democratic candidate was elected to the U.S. Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century. It is hoped to open the door for Democrats to possibly retake the chamber in next year's congressional elections. Trump endorsed Moore even as other party leaders in Washington walked away from him.
