The New York Times is reporting that Moore and Jones are tied in the Alabama Senate race.
Moments later, with 88 percent of precincts reporting, Doug Jones took a 0.8 percent lead. This is obviously going to be one of the tightest Senate races in recent memory, and over 1 million voters have turned out.
Update: Roy Moore is now up by 31 votes according to Decision Desk HQ!
The AP is calling it for Doug Jones!

The reaction on Twitter at the moment:
Doug Jones did not win this election. The media won it for him. Congrats “unbiased” media #AlabamaSenateElection

Democrats don’t realize what they’ve done tonight. They did not win the election against Roy Moore fairly. The man was blindly called a “pedophile” & “child molester” without due process. They have forever changed the rules of the game & it will hurt them. #AlabamaSenateElection
