Senator-elect Doug Jones told NBC's Savannah Guthrie Thursday that he understands Roy Moore's frustration in losing in Alabama but it's time for him "to move on."

Key quote: "Every race is tough, it's bitter sometimes... the people of Alabama have now spoken... I think he would do well to go ahead and [say] let's get this behind us." Jones added that there's "no doubt" in his mind that he won, despite Moore's unwillingness to concede defeat.
