Mitch McConnell calls Senate Republicans ‘the firewall against Nancy Pelosi’s agenda’ in RNC speech

By

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hailed Senate Republicans as the “firewall against Nancy Pelosi’s agenda,” while pitching himself as the only Washington leader looking out for “middle America” during the fourth and final night of the Republican National Convention.”I am immensely proud of the work the Republican Senate has done,” McConnell said. “We are the firewall against Nancy Pelosi’s agenda. Like President Trump, we won’t be bullied by a liberal media intent on destroying America’s institutions.”McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, noted that of the top three congressional leaders — himself, Pelosi and New York Sen. Chuck Schumer — he’s the only one from “middle America.”2020 RACE RESET?
