Mitch McConnell re-elected Senate majority leader unopposed

WASHINGTON — Mitch McConnell was unanimously re-elected Senate majority leader on Tuesday, continuing his reign as one of the most powerful figures in Washington.

The Republican conference bestowed the honor on McConnell (R-Ky.) and applause could be heard from outside the room, sources confirmed.

The 78-year-old lawmaker defied naysayers last week when he won his own race in Kentucky for the seventh time in a landslide, prevailing over Democratic opponent Amy McGrath, a well-funded military veteran who raised more than $80 million.

Republicans under McConnell’s stewardship are poised to keep control of the Senate, but face two fiercely contested runoff elections in Georgia in January.
