Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reached out to his presumed successor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying that he hoped they could work together “to get things done” in Washington.
In a statement, according to Mediaite, Reid said, “I’d like to congratulate Sen. McConnell, who will be the new Senate Majority Leader. The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together. I look forward to working with Sen. McConnell to get things done for the middle class.”
McConnell’s resounding victory in Kentucky over Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes started the GOP wave on election night.
