It's been 11 days and Republican Roy Moore has yet to concede in Alabama's special Senate race, even as election officials move toward certifying Democrat Doug Jones' victory.

As vote tallies from 100 percent of the state's precincts show Alabamians have clearly selected Jones, Moore has offered no indication that he plans to concede the race.

In a statement, Secretary of State John H. Merrill said his office plans to officially certify the election on Dec. 28.

Also, some of the names left on thousands of write-in ballots began to emerge. Some names are surprising. Who knew SpongeBob SquarePants had a constituency?
