BREAKING: He PROMISES He Will Be Re-Elected - Dems FUMING...

August 5, 2022

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is confident he's going to be back as leader of his party.

In his opinion, it doesn't matter if Republicans take the majority or not, Kentucky Mitch is the man to lead them.

McConnell even told Fox's Bret Baier that challengers could "have at it."

"Senator, you’re losing some of your most trusted lieutenants. Rob Portman, Pat Toomey Richard Burr. You could be looking, as I mentioned, J.D. Vance, Mehmet Oz, Ted Budd. You have Trump-loyal Republicans like Eric Schmitt, who just won in Missouri, Blake Masters in Arizona. And some of those candidates have refused to say on the trail that they would back you as leader. Is that the new face of a Trumpified Republican Party? And are you the guy to lead that in the Senate," Baier asked.

"Yes. Well, look at it this way. I have been elected eight times without opposition. If I have an opponent, I don’t own this job. And there’s always an election every two years for leader. If anybody wants to challenge me, have at it."

McConnell then went on to add that he would be leader even if Republicans don't win the majority.
