The majority leader then called on Moore to withdraw from the race in the face of mounting allegations against Moore from women saying he pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. McConnell also said Moore would likely face a Senate Ethics Committee investigation if elected.

The Associated Press called the race for Democrat Doug Jones shortly before 10:30 p.m. EST Tuesday. It is the first time in 25 years Alabama has elected a Democrat to the Senate.

In the same tweet, Hannity referred to anti-Trump text messages from an FBI agent who worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's team.
