GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is preparing just one speech to deliver following Tuesday night’s election results, according to a new report.
“The Moore campaign tells me he’s writing one speech only, calling tonight ‘an opportunity for the Judge to call America back to her foundational principles regardless of what happens in the election,’” CNN’s Kaitlan Collins tweeted Tuesday night shortly after the Alabama polls closed.

Moore is competing in a closer-than-originally-expected race as he faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct — charges which he denies.
Moore, who was officially endorsed by President Trump earlier this month, is up against Democrat Doug Jones Tuesday in the Alabama special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat. Luther Strange, who ran against Moore in the primary, has filled the seat in the interim.
Preliminary returns, with 3 percent reporting, show Jones in the lead.
