RUSH EXCERPT:

TURNER: "And I hope he does. But that — the loss of his Senate service, whenever it comes, whatever he steps aside, constitutes a national security crisis for the GOP, but by extension for the country, in the sense that this is a person who has been the primary voice on national security issues for a decade. This is somebody who explains the ISIS threat to us starting in 2014 when they first emerged on the scene. He has explained the threat posed by our nuclear adversaries around the world. And I don’t see, on the Republican side, I don’t see any current leader who rival him and I don’t see the next generation of leaders who are going to have that same — you know, have that same voice on these issues."
