In an exclusive interview with CQ Roll Call on Dec. 5, incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had high praise for the incoming class of majority-makers. “I always think there is sort of two kinds of people in politics: those that want to make a point and those that want to make a difference,” McConnell said. “And I think we’ve just added 12 new members to the ‘make a difference’ caucus. And I think we, you know, have some occasional differences over tactics, but I think we are gonna have a broad support within our conference for right-of-center progress.”
