Sen. McConnell Prepping for Possible Senate Exit, Plans to Strip Power of Dem. Gov. to Replace Him

HeadlineMar 05, 2021

The Intercept reports Mitch McConnell has prepared a short list of candidates to succeed him as Kentucky senator, in the event he does not serve out his full term. Normally, Kentucky’s governor — in this case, Democrat Andy Beshear — would appoint a replacement, but Republicans are pushing legislation in the Kentucky General Assembly that would strip him of that power. At the top of McConnell’s list is state Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who is facing calls for impeachment over his mishandling of Breonna Taylor’s case. Taylor was the young EMT who was killed by police in a no-knock raid of her home last March.
