Addison Mitchell McConnell, Jr., popularly called Mitch McConnell is the senior United States Senator from Kentucky and the Republican Minority Leader.
July 10: Mitch McConnell, speaking on Fox News Sunday, says that his political goal is to make Barack Obama a one-term president.
"Well that is true, that’s my single most important political goal, along with every active Republican in the country. But that’s in 2012. Our biggest goal for this year is to get this country straightened out, and you can’t get this country straightened out if you don’t do something about spending, about deficit, about debt and get this economy moving again. So, our goal is to have a robust vibrant economy that will benefit all Americans, and that’s why I think this debate we’re having right now is so important to our country’s future."
