Mitch McConnell, the longest-serving Senate leader in history who maintained his power in the face of dramatic convulsions in the Republican Party for almost two decades, will step down from that position in November.


Speaking on the Senate floor, Mitch McConnell just formally announced his plan to depart as the chamber’s top Republican in November.

“This will be my last term as Republican leader. I’m not going anywhere, anytime soon. I’ll complete my job. My colleagues have given me until we select a new leader in November and they take the helm next January. I’ll finish the job that people Kentucky hired me to do as well. I’ll be it from a different seat,” McConnell said.

McConnell is, it should be noted, a strong supporter of aid for Ukraine and no longer a fanboy of that former game show host now facing 91 felony charges, Donald Trump.
