Senate Dems' campaign arm: Trends seen in Alabama emerging across US

Sen.-elect Doug Jones speaks during a news conference Wednesday Dec. 13 2017 in Birmingham Ala

As Democrats revelled in a stunning Senate win in Alabama, mainstream Republicans wasted no time in blaming a powerful strategist for the party's disastrous political setback: anti-establishment rabble-rouser Steve Bannon. Democrats, on the other hand, are anxious that his political posturing could delay Jones' arrival to the Senate, where he could be a key vote against the GOP tax bill.

"In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots", Moore said.

After Mr Moore's embarrassing loss, Representative Peter King, a New York Republican, vented his frustration, saying Mr Bannon looked "like some dishevelled drunk who wandered on to the political stage", and "is not the type of person we need in politics".

Secretary of State John Merrill has said it is unlikely that the last-minute ballots will change the outcome of the election or even trigger a recount.

It's "highly unlikely" that Jones would not be officially declared the victor of the election, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told CNN.

Alabama Republican Roy Moore on Friday told supporters that the "battle is not over" in Alabama's Senate race even though President Donald Trump and others have called on him to concede.

Police said homicide investigators are involved in the case, though the deaths have not officially been classified as homicides. The Shermans recently listed their home for sale for almost 7 million Canadian dollars, about $5.4 million.

The election must undergo a certification process that will make sure votes are valid.

Mr Moore, 70, a Christian conservative who was removed from the state Supreme Court in Alabama twice for ignoring federal law, denied the sexual allegations and said he did not know any of the women who made them.

The results of Alabama's Senate race will be certified between December 26 and January 3 after counties report their official totals. Moore said his campaign is collecting "numerous reported cases of voter fraud" to send to the secretary of state's office.

The theories are mainly being pushed by conservative websites and among Republican voters, but they also are impacting Moore himself.
