McConnell faces questions, but no test to his leadership
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing more questions from fellow Republicans about his decisions after the collapse of the ObamaCare repeal effort, even if his job as the GOP leader is safe.
Many in the GOP conference credit the Kentucky Republican with doing as good a job as could be expected, given the difficult circumstances.
McConnell had some doubts about whether an ObamaCare reform bill could be muscled through the Senate, given divisions within his party.
Yet without the surprise “no” vote from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the leader would at least have been able to proceed to a conference with the House.
