Mitch McConnell unanimously re-elected Senate majority leader

Republican Senator from Kentucky, Mitch McConnell has been unanimously re-elected as Senate Majority leader.

The 78-year-old military veteran won his race against Democratic opponent Amy McGrath last week with a campaign budget of $80 million.

Democrats re-elected Senator Chuck Schumer from New York as the minority leader, with Senator Dick Durbin as minority whip and Senator Patty Murray as assistant Democratic leader.

Under McConnell’s leadership, the GOP is poised to keep control of the Senate, but face two hotly contested runoff elections in Georgia in January.
