Mitch McConnell to resign as leader of the Republican Senate in November

by | Feb 28, 2024

Mitch McConnell, the longest-serving Senate leader in history, will step down from that position in the midst of the Republican Party's upheaval. He will resign in November.

McConnell, who turned 82 last week, was scheduled to make his announcement on Wednesday in the Senate's well, where he had previously watched from the party's back benches in 1985 and where he had grown increasingly comfortable in the front row seat afforded to the party leaders.

His decision exemplifies the Republican Party's powerful ideological transition due to Trump’s influence and popularity.
