WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued the below statement today following U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s announcement that he will step down from his leadership post at the end of this year.

“Mitch McConnell’s leadership of the United States Senate is unprecedented, and the country owes him a debt of gratitude for his service. Leader McConnell will continue to be a champion for his home state of Kentucky, a leader for our country, and an influential voice emphasizing the critical role that America plays in the world. The Chamber thanks Leader McConnell for his partnership in advocating for and ensuring enactment of essential priorities for America’s businesses, their workers, and the economy. And with the stakes higher than ever as we work to promote free enterprise and defend democracy at home and abroad, we look forward to our continuing partnership and the Senator’s many more years of service to the American people.”
