With the Republican US Senate midterm results looking less and less ?
NY US Senator Chuck Schumer gets a vote of confidence from his fellow Democrats on his leadership….
He remains the US Senate Minority leader….
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday was named Senate Democratic leader as both parties met to decide their leadership teams for the next Congress.
Schumer was reelected as Minority Leader by acclamation in the closed-door meeting, per a source familiar.
Schumer, who has served in the post since 2017, was expected to be uncontested for the caucus’s top spot.
As the top Democrat in the Senate, he’ll have to navigate the presidential ambitions of several members of his caucus who are considered potential 2020 contenders while negotiating with Republicans heading into the next White House battle.
While Republicans were looking a leadership shakeup, the Democratic leadership team is expected to largely stay the same.
