• It was a big night for the Democrats. Two big election wins in the gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. The Democratic victories are causing some political strategists to speculate that it is a symbolic win heading into next year's elections. Carl Cameron reports.

• And last week, Senate Democrats forced the chamber into closed session out of frustration, they say, with the lack of progress in pursuing an investigation into the Bush administration's handling of intelligence leading up to the Iraq war. Jim Angle has the latest news on the "Gang of Six."

• Plus, the chiefs of five major oil companies defended the industry's huge profits Wednesday at a Senate hearing where lawmakers said they should explain prices and assure people they're not being gouged. Major Garrett has a report.

• Then, the Iraq’s Deputy Prime Minister Ahmed Chalabi visits with Secretary Rice in Washington. Chalabi remains under investigation for leaking classified information to Iran. Molly Henneberg reports on his visit.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.

About the Show

Anchored by Washington news veteran Brit Hume, "Special Report with Brit Hume" provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation.

Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.

Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Baltimore Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."

Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and in-the-Beltway gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The New York Daily News describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sound smart around the water cooler… the next day."

FOX News' Team Washington provides live reports from the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.

Hume wraps up each program with a lively roundtable discussion featuring Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and Mort Kondracke of Roll Call.
