Doug Jones received 49.92 percent of the vote, and Moore received 48.38 percent, but Roy Moore Isn't Conceding.

Moore wants a recount, and he can have one, provided he pays for it himself.

The loss of a Senate seat cuts the Republican lead to 51-49.

Trump, who openly supported Moore, congratulated Jones.

Jones will not be seated until next year. If Republicans do not reconcile differences by the time the tax bill comes to vote, it may not pass.
