Democrat Doug Jones has officially been declared the winner of the US Senate race in the southern state of Alabama, whittling down the slim Republican majority in the chamber.
Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill certified the results of the December 12 special election. Merrill dismissed claims of voter fraud by the campaign of defeated Republican candidate, Roy Moore. With Jones’ victory in a Republican bastion, the party of President Trump now holds 51 seats in the Senate and the Democrats 49 which is the slimmest of majorities. The Alabama result dealt a stinging blow to Trump, who had thrown his support behind Moore, a conservative Christian embroiled in sexual misconduct scandals.
