Moore Campaign Says Law Requires Recount in Alabama Senate Race

Roy Moore refused to concede the U.S. Senate race to Doug Jones on Tuesday night, saying that Alabama state law requires a recount when there is a margin of half a percentage point or less.

It’s true that Alabama state law does say that. However, as of around 11:00 CT Tuesday night, Jones led Moore by about three times the margin by which a recount would be required.

Now, the Moore campaign can contest the results and pay for a recount. But the Republican Alabama Secretary of State didn’t seem to support the idea of an automatic recount during an interview with CNN Tuesday night. The secretary of state said earlier Tuesday that he voted for Moore.

The Moore campaign cited the fact that not all military ballots have been counted as one reason for demanding an automatic recount. However, the Alabama secretary of state said that those votes likely would not make a difference in terms of the winner.
