Doug Jones To Roy Moore: You Need To Move On

The Birmingham News reports:

Senator-elect Doug Jones has a message for his Republican challenger Roy Moore: It’s time to move on.

Speaking on the Today Show two days after his upset win, Jones said he is “confident” he won Tuesday night’s election, despite Moore’s refusal to concede until provisional and military votes are counted.

“I understand the frustration a little bit. It is a close race,” Jones said when asked what he’d like to say to Moore. “It’s time to move on. Every race is tough. It’s bitter sometimes. I think this one was one that people in Alabama have now spoke and they decided to heal.

“I think (Moore) would do well to go ahead and let’s get this behind us so that the people of Alabama can get someone in there to start working for them.”
