Republican senators unanimously reelected Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as their leader Tuesday.
McConnell has served in the role longer than any other senator. He first took the post in 2007. Sens. John Thune (SD), John Barrasso (WY), Joni Ernst (IA) and Roy Blunt (MO) also retained their leadership roles. Thune was reelected as majority whip, Barrasso as Republican Conference chairman, Ernst as vice president of the Senate Republican Conference, and Blunt as Republican Policy Committee chairman.
Sen. Rick Scott (FL) will lead Senate GOP campaign efforts for the 2022 midterm elections.
Which party will control the Senate in January remains undecided. Two Senate races in Georgia will go to a runoff, which is set to take place January 5.
