The Senate Democratic caucus re-elected Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and added Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) to its leadership ranks, a Senate Democratic source tells Axios.
The re-election of the full Senate Democratic leadership team comes after a relatively disappointing general election in which the party failed to win outright control of the Senate, despite record amounts of fundraising. Democrats still have a chance to become the Senate majority if they win a pair of Georgia runoffs in January.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was unanimously re-elected by his GOP colleagues on Tuesday, Senate GOP leadership sources tells Axios. The entire Republican leadership team is also expected to be re-elected, apart from Sen. Todd Young (Ind.) as chair of the Senate GOP’s campaign arm.
