Alabama to officially end its scandal-tinged US Senate race


The Associated Press



MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabama election officials say they will certify Democratic candidate Doug Jones' upset victory over Republican rival Roy Moore next week. 


The Alabama Secretary of State announced in a statement Friday that the election results would be finalized next Thursday. 


Jones defeated Moore on Dec. 12 to become the first Democrat elected to the Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century. Moore was besieged by decades-old accusations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls when he was in his 30s. He has denied the allegations. 


Moore has not conceded the race. In a Thursday fundraising letter to his supporters, Moore said he needs donations to investigate what he calls reports of fraud and irregularities in the election.
