Hugh Hewitt: GOP Leaders: Looking Forward

When President Biden completes his oath of office on Wednesday, Senator Mitch McConnell goes from being the most effective Senate Majority Leader the Republicans have had in my lifetime to being the equal of the most influential Senate Minority Leader in history—given the 50/50 split in the Senate.
