After securing his seventh term as the representative of the Bluegrass State, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell delivered a post-election victory speech from Louisville on Wednesday.

When the Kentucky senator took to the podium in downtown Louisville, he called Tuesday night's win a "gratifying victory."

He touched on a number of topics, including the latest on the possibility of Republicans retaining the majority in the Senate, which he says as of now, is too early to predict.

Another point stressed by McConnell: The struggle of Kentuckians in the midst of the pandemic.

"You can keep pumping money into the economy forever and it won't solve the problem until we kill the virus," said Sen. McConnell. "Having said that, there are other sectors that need help and I outlined what I think is appropriate, but I don't get to make the final decision - we have to deal with the Democrats."

"What I'm saying," McConnell explained, "is I think now that the election is over, the need is there and we need to sit don and work this out."

As far as the presidential race, Sen. McConnell said Trump ran "one heck of a race."

Sen. McConnell was declared the winner of the Kentucky Senate race just after 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday night.
