Sen. Martha McSally often toes the party line, but hasn’t yet said which Republican she’ll support to lead the Senate should her party maintain a majority.

Recently, McSally has sided with McConnell in his opposition to providing coronavirus funding to local governments, his stance against extending pandemic unemployment insurance benefits, and his push to appoint 200 federal judges during President Donald Trump’s time as president.

But McConnell’s position of leadership in the Senate could come to an end in January when the newly-elected members of the Senate are sworn in and a new Senate Majority Leader is chosen. The Copper Courier reached out to Sen. McSally’s office to get a statement regarding who she will support for the position, but has not yet responded to comment.
