Mitch McConnell finally made the one Senate announcement that every conservative can get behind

Mitch McConnell is the longest-serving Senate Leader in history.

But McConnell has a long history of selling out and stabbing conservatives in the back. 

And Mitch McConnell finally made the one Senate announcement that every conservative can get behind.

McConnell is the Swamp

Mitch McConnell entered the U.S. Senate in 1985 as the most senior Republican Senator in the Upper Chamber.

From day one, McConnell had a goal of rising through the ranks to become the Republican Leader in the Senate.

It took him 21 years, but McConnell achieved his goal in 2006 when he was elected as the GOP Senate Leader by his colleagues.

McConnell went on to win nine straight elections and is currently the longest-serving Senate Leader in history.

Of course, McConnell has sold out to Democrats and stabbed conservatives in the back every step of the way of his long career as Senate Leader.

When in the majority, McConnell has always blocked conservative legislation from reaching the floor for a vote.

And when in the minority, he caves in and cuts deals with the Democrats.

McConnell has caved in to Joe Biden several times during his three years in office.

He cut a deal with Chuck Schumer to pass the largest gun control bill in the past 30 years, caved in on the debt ceiling, and went along with trillions of dollars in wasteful spending.

McConnell has attacked conservative candidates and worked against them in the General Election numerous times over the years, including in the 2022 Midterms.

McConnell’s Reign of Terror is Over

After years of establishment control of the Party, conservatives may finally get an opportunity to move legislation in the Senate after November when the members elect new leadership.

That’s because Senator Mitch McConnell just shocked his colleagues with a surprise announcement on the floor.

“As I have been thinking about when I would deliver some news to the Senate, I always imagined a moment when I had total clarity and peace about the sunset of my work,” McConnell said. “A moment when I am certain I have helped preserve the ideals I so strongly believe,” he continued. “It arrived today.”

McConnell then informed his colleagues that he would be stepping down as Senate Leader in November.

“One of life’s most underappreciated talents is to know when it’s time to move on to life’s next chapter,” he said in prepared remarks obtained by AP.  “So I stand before you today . . . to say that this will be my last term as Republican leader of the Senate.”

McConnell’s announcement was something for conservatives to celebrate.

But it made Joe Biden sad.

“I’ve trusted him and we have a great relationship,” Joe Biden said. “We fight like hell,” he continued, before adding “but he has never, never, never misrepresented anything.”

As Senate Leader, McConnell has blocked conservative legislation and cut deals with the Democrats to grow the government.

Conservatives never had a chance with McConnell as Senate Leader.

But with McConnell stepping aside after November, Senate Republicans could have a conservative leader in 2025 for the first time in decades.
