Sundance: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Has Another Episode
Written by Sundance of The Conservative Treehouse
This one is worse, significantly worse. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell freezes again while taking questions from reporters on Wednesday at an event in Kentucky. This very disturbing cognitive disconnect is raising additional concerns about the 81-year-old’s health. The episode happens after a reporter asked him about running for re-election in 2026.
WASHINGTON – Senators quickly sought more information about McConnell’s health after the incident, according to one person familiar with the dynamics. Shortly after the Wednesday incident, McConnell held calls with his closest allies including Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), Conference Chair John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), according to people familiar with the calls. All of them are potential successors to McConnell.
