“I’m seriously considering it. I think that [the 2017 Senate race] was stolen,” Moore responded.

Jones was the first Democrat in decades to be elected to the red state of Alabama.

On the campaign trail, Moore faced allegations of sexual assault, including claims that he pursued teenage girls while he was in his 30s.

He has denied the allegations and has blamed disinformation campaigns for his loss.
