Republican Senatorial candidate Roy Moore speaks during a campaign event at Jordan's Activity Barn in Midland City, Alabama, on December 11, 2017. Jones said he will be an "independent voice" in the Senate and will strive for "common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle".
The Alabama judge came under fire during his campaign after multiple women came forward accusing him of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.
Jones is scheduled to be sworn in as the junior senator from Alabama next week.
Moore claimed that "election fraud experts across the country have agreed that this was a fraudulent election", though an Alabama judge threw out Moore's lawsuit alleging voter fraud earlier Thursday afternoon.
Republican Roy Moore, who lost, is claiming that voter fraud played a massive role in his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, pulling off an upset victory.
Republican Roy Moore is doing everything he can to stop Democrat Doug Jones from being certified as the victor of a special election in Alabama to fill an open seat in the U.S. Senate, but his efforts have thus far been unsuccessful.
"I have stood for the truth about God and the Constitution for the people of Alabama", he said.
Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick denied Moore's request for a restraining order to stop Alabama's canvassing board from certifying Jones' victory on Thursday.
Mr Jones won 49.9% of the vote compared to Moore's 48.4%, a margin of almost 21,000 votes out of 1.3 million cast. "This desperate attempt by Roy Moore to subvert the will of the people will not succeed", he told the Post.
Trump congratulated Jones after the unofficial vote counts were tallied, but said in a tweet sent later that day that "the deck was stacked against" Moore.
Moore had vocally questioned the results and filed a last-minute legal challenge of them, according to the news outlet.
If the election is prematurely certified, Mr. Moore's lawyers wrote, he will "suffer irreparable harm" and be "denied his full right as a candidate to a fair election".
It cited "irregularities in 20 precincts" of the state's Jefferson County which it said were "enough to reverse the outcome of the election", quoting the views of conspiracy theorist Richard Charnin who claims the 2004 presidential election and 2016 Democratic primary were also rigged.
Moore's attorney wrote in the wide-ranging complaint that he believed there were irregularities during the election, including that voters may have been brought in from other states. He said so far his office has found no evidence of fraud.
Moore and Jones ran for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, a Republican who became the US attorney general.
