Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore was denied a lawsuit he filed this morning seeking to block Doug Jones from being declared the winner of the Alabama Senate special election and calling for a new election, Politico reports. The lawsuit also sought an investigation into alleged voter fraud, which Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said there was no evidence of. A judge dismissed the suit, and Jones was certified the official victor later in the day.
