GOP Wants to Delay Senate Leadership Vote for McConnell

It would appear that our Senate members have finally woken up as to Senator McConnell (R-KY) and his failings.

There is a leadership vote scheduled for Wednesday even though we are still waiting on election results.

Numerous Republican senators have requested the vote be put off, with speculation rising that McConnell's leadership role could now be in jeopardy.

Going to Need to Wait

We know there has been a rise in interest to remove McConnell from leadership.

His spending during this election cycle has raised a lot of questions.

There is also the fact that Walker's runoff race is not until December.

If he were to win, he should have a vote on leadership.

The fact that McConnell is spending truckloads of cash in Alaska to support Senator Murkowski (R-AK) over another Republican is not sitting well with many, including former President Trump.

After Trump-backed Blake Masters fell to Senator Mark Kelly (R-AZ), Trump stated, "Mitch McConnell, the Republicans Broken Down Senate Leader, does nothing about this. He's too busy spending vast amounts of money on bad Senator Lisa [Murkowski] of Alaska, when Kelly [Tshibaka] is FAR better."

Senator Cruz (R-TX) also commented, "It makes no sense for Senate to have leadership elections before GA runoff.

"We don't yet know whether we'll have a majority & Herschel Walker deserves a say in our leadership.

"Critically, we need to hear a specific plan for the next 2 yrs from any candidate for leadership."

Senators Rubio (R-FL), Lummis (R-WY), and Hawley (R-MO) have also voted to delay the vote.

So far, McConnell has refused their request, stating the vote will go on as planned and members can express their views in the debate prior to the vote.
