Feb 7, 2019

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky may be the most powerful politician in America. McConnell began his first term in the Senate in 1985, and has served as majority whip and minority leader.

He became Senate Majority Leader in 2015, then found himself in new territory when President Trump took office.
