Alabama evangelical explains why Moore won’t concede: He can’t believe ‘God would will a Democrat to win’

Writing on Twitter, Plott notes that Moore during the campaign said that he had full trust in God that He would help deliver a victory in the 2017 special election. When Democrat Doug Jones was called as the victor on Tuesday night, this short-circuited Moore’s understanding of the ways that God supposedly operates.

“To be clear: For a candidate to say he is ‘waiting for God to speak’ viz election results is to say he is waiting for God to anoint him the rightful victor,” she explains. “It is to say that there is no world in which God would will for a Democrat to win.”
