McConnell Sets Post-Election Speech

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky will offer post-election views Thursday in a speech at the Heritage Foundation that the organization said will address “the message of the people to Capitol Hill following the elections.”

An announcement also said McConnell will “examine a policy agenda” for the next Congress at the 11 a.m. event.

McConnell is sure to declare any pickup of Republican seats today a victory. He and the National Republican Senate Committee have worked in recent days to manage expectations by noting Republicans many in early 2009 expected Republicans to lose seats this year.

 

“It would take quite a perfect day to get a majority, but I think we’re going to be very much in play over here in terms of making policy and determining what happens in the Senate,” McConnell said in an interview published today by The National Review. In the interview he also addressed criticism of his remarks to National Journal that he top goal is making President Obama a one-term president. “Well, his No. 1 political goal is to be a two-termer,” McConnell said.

In multiple interviews in recent days, McConnell said he wants to repeal the healthcare overhaul bill and said the degree of Republican cooperation with Obama will depend on the president's agenda.
