Moore was accused of sexual misconduct last month by multiple women, including one woman who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 years old and he was in his 30s.
Moore denied the allegations, but faced calls to drop out of the race from top Republicans.
The Republican National Committee briefly cut off support for Moore, but reinstated its support in the final week of the race.

Trump also recorded a robocall for Moore in the final days of the race, and attacked Jones as a “Schemer/Pelosi puppet.”
Jones’s victory tightens Republicans’ margin in the Senate, giving them just a 51-49 advantage over Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
