Mitchell Unveiled

[IMGCAP(1)]Former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell (D-Maine) returns to Capitol Hill today for the unveiling of his official portrait.

Alan Magee of Maine painted the portrait of Mitchell that will hang in the Capitol. Mitchell was appointed to his Senate seat in 1980, when Sen. Edmund Muskie (D) left the chamber to become President Jimmy Carter’s secretary of State. Mitchell served as Majority Leader from 1989 until he retired in 1995.

The invitation-only ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. in the Old Senate Chamber.
