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.
