Republicans elect Mitch McConnell as US Senate leader

The Senate Republican leadership team, with Senator Mitch McConnell (C), at the US Capitol after a leadership election on November 13, 2014 in Washington, DCSenate Republicans on Thursday unanimously elected Mitch McConnell as their chief and the chamber’s majority leader for the upcoming Congress, after the party rode to victory in last week’s midterm elections. As expected, McConnell will take over from current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at the start of the new congressional session on January 3. Senate Democrats, meanwhile, re-elected Reid as their leader on Thursday. Reid, 74, has held the post of majority leader since his party won the Senate eight years ago, but must now trade places with McConnell.
