United States Sen. Tom Cotton said he remains supportive of his colleague, Sen. Mitch McConnell, in his bid to remain the GOP leader in the Senate. Cotton joined “Face the Nation” on CBS and said he doesn’t see any sense in delaying the leadership election since all leadership positions are uncontested.
“So far, no one has had the nerve to step forward and challenge Sen. McConnell,” Cotton said. “So, I support Sen. McConnell. I support the other slate of candidates for our leadership elections.”
Conservative senators had expressed frustration with McConnell. There have also been suggestions to wait on the leadership election until after the Georgia run-off between Herschel Walker and Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock.
