Likely not. I don’t think many people see McConnell going anywhere anytime soon. But most thought the same of Boehner. So who knows?
One thing is clear however. Some powerful people within the GOP want the current Senate leader gone. This will factor into McConnell’s maneuvering going forward. He knows that any more $3 billion pork deals like he got for Kentucky a couple of years ago will draw the ire of those he is supposed to be leading.
