Mariah Cain, Staff Writer

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, 82, announced that he is stepping down as the GOP leader after November’s presidential elections. McConnell is the longest-serving party leader in Senate history with 17 years. He was first elected to the Senate in 1984 and is Kentucky’s longest-serving senator.

“I always imagined a moment when I have total clarity and peace about the sunset of my work. A moment when I’m certain I have helped preserve the ideals I so strongly believe,” said McConnell. “That day arrived today.”
