FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) – Speaking to the media and his constituents, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is back in Kentucky to talk about the results of the midterm election.

The results of the midterm election meant a shift of the house from Republican to Democrat control.

McConnell had media availability Friday to talk about how the shift will impact decision making in the upcoming years.

McConnell acknowledged that the Democratic Party will have control of the house but that doesn’t mean that Democrats and Republicans can’t work together to get things passed. He also says that Republicans did very well this election in rural areas but that they need to work on getting more voters in suburbs.

The Senate Majority Leader also mentioned his 2020 run for re-election that he previously announced at Fancy Farm.
