Mike Huckabee: Roy Moore Should “Exit With Class”

The Hill reports:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said after embattled GOP candidate Roy Moore was defeated in the Alabama Senate race that it’s “best to exit with class.”

Alabama state law requires an automatic recount when election results are within 0.5 percent. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Jones holds 49.9 percent of the vote, compared to Moore’s 48.4 percent, a 1.5 percent gap, according to The New York Times.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill (R) was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if he expected “anything other than Mr. Jones being the next senator from the state of Alabama.” “I would find that highly unlikely to occur, Jake,” Merrill said.
