McConnell (R-Ky.) didn’t reveal whether he plans to pursue an eighth term in 2026, but told Louisville’s NewsRadio 840 that his chief mission is pushing back against “isolationists” within the GOP. …

The Kentuckian added that Americans are living through “the most dangerous time for the free world since right [before] the Berlin Wall fell down.”

“My party tends to be isolationist when there’s a Democrat in the White House,” McConnell explained. “Most Republicans voted against Lend-Lease going into World War II and Pearl Harbor straightened that out.”

McConnell announced in late February that he would not vie for another term as the leader of the Senate Republicans, a role he’s held since 2007 — making him the longest-serving leader of either party in US history. …

McConnell added Monday that another priority of his is to ensure that Republicans flip the Senate this November, which they are favored to do thanks to a favorable map.

“I’d like the person who succeeds me to be the majority leader,” McConnell said before reupping his encouragement of House Republicans to pass a supplemental aid package to help Ukraine against Russia’s invasion. …

McConnell also tore into President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for feuding with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid Israel’s war in Gaza. …
