Website tracks whether Roy Moore has conceded Alabama Senate contest

A website is keeping track of whether Republican Roy Moore has conceded the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama to Democrat Doug Jones.

Searching will direct a web user to a page that says “NO” in a large, bold font.

“On Tuesday, December 12, 2017, Roy Moore ran as the Republican party candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Moore was defeated by Doug Jones, the Democrat party candidate. Jones defeated Moore by approximately 20,000 votes,” the website says.

Moore released a statement and video Wednesday night repeating his election night refusal to back down. “In this race, we have not received the final count​ to include ​military and provisional ballots,” he said. “This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state.”

Despite Moore’s insistence on waiting for a possible recount, Secretary of State of Alabama John Merrill has said that the outcome of the election will likely not change.
