Blackmon edges Jones for seat

There was some speculation amongst election officials this week whether or not Jones would challenge the results, but he put those rumors to bed Wednesday morning.

“I can challenge it,” Jones said. “At first she was 25 (votes) up, so how that jumped to 70 I still can’t figure out,” he said. “But, I don’t think I’m gonna challenge that.”

He added, “I’m leaving the right way and I’m not pulling a Chris McDaniel, so when I want to come back I’ll be able to come back and still have credibility.”

Jones was referencing his fellow senator’s failed bid for the U.S. senate seat last year.
