Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said no matter what happens Tuesday in the Alabama Senate race, “Republicans really have no way to win.”
Hume was speaking with host Tucker Carlson about the “implications” the contentious election between conservative Roy Moore and “liberal Democrat” Doug Jones will have on GOP senators.
“On an ordinary night on a special election in Alabama, we would probably be calling this at 8 o’clock for the Republican,” Hume said. “But as you point out, this is no ordinary night.”
“There are two missiles that are heading toward Republicans in the U.S Senate, and those who may run for the job,” Hume continued. “And the only question is: which one is going to hit them?”
Hume said the first “missile”—Jones winning the Senate seat—means a tougher Congressional body to try and pass the party’s legislative agenda through. Hume noted that would be a “big deal.”
“If Roy Moore wins, they they probably have a political albatross around their neck, or at least someone that Democrats going forward will try to hang around their neck,” Hume surmised.
“This looks like a night in which the Republicans really have no way to win,” he said.

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
