Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday announced he was promoting two of his personal office legislative aides to domestic policy advisers in his leadership office.

Scott Raab has served as McConnell’s legislative director since 2005. In the Senate Minority Leader’s office, Raab will focus on health care, commerce and telecommunications issues within the jurisdiction of the Finance and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committees, plus issues in the Commerce and Aging committees. He was a key adviser to McConnell and the Republican Conference on health care in the 111th Congress.

Neil Chatterjee, who is joining Raab in moving to McConnell’s leadership office, has served as a legislative assistant. Since 2009, Chatterjee has advised McConnell on energy and agriculture issues. His focus will include agriculture, energy, environmental and transportation issues in the jurisdiction of the Agriculture, Energy and Natural Resources, and Environment and Public Works committees.

“Scott and Neil will provide continuity on our policy staff and help ensure that Kentuckians and the Conference are well-served,” McConnell said. “I’m confident they will have an immediate and important impact on our team and on behalf of my constituents.”
