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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
