Hawley comes out against McConnell's leadership in Senate

September 9, 2023

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said Thursday on Fox News' The Ingraham Angle that he doesn't support Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) leadership and that people were coming to him "constantly" with concerns about McConnell's ability to continue as minority leader.

Hawley said he agreed with their concerns and understands why they would be concerned after McConnell had several lapses while speaking on the Senate floor recently.

“Yeah, I am concerned,” Hawley said. “I get asked about it constantly. I understand why people are concerned about it. I’m concerned about it."

Hawley said he hadn't supported McConnell's leadership back in January and that he thinks a change is needed.

"Listen, Laura, I will be honest with you — I did not vote for Mitch McConnell for leader. He is not my choice for leader. I think we need a change. I have said that for months,” he said.

McConnell has said he won't step down as leader and intends to finish his Senate term, which ends in 2027. He is 81 years old.
