    For what's trending today, Howard Dicus presented some background for Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore. The Alabama Senate race results were certified yesterday. Roy Moore tried to block it in state court, but the judge quickly dismissed it. Moore claimed fraud but the Republican election chief said there wasn't any. Moore never conceded, despite a call from President Trump to do so. But that's nothing new. Moore ran for governor in 2006 and lost and never conceded.
