Senator Mitch McConnell was re-elected as the Republican Senate Majority Leader on Tuesday.

In a unanimous vote, the Kentucky Senator was selected to continue his role during the 117th Congress. That means Sen. McConnell will hold the position through 2023.

During a press conference on Capitol Hill, Sen. McConnell said "Grateful to my Senate Republican colleagues for their unanimous confidence in me to continue serving as Leader. We have a lot more to do to continue fighting for working families and strengthening our great country.”

The senator was first chosen for the Majority Leader position in 2007 and is now the longest-serving Senate Republican Leader in history.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
