If Republicans Take the Senate, John Kennedy Should Be Leader

Granted, he was once a Democrat but we all make mistakes. Some of us learn from mistakes and articulates Republican values far better than some of the establishment hacks representing us now.

Of all of the senators on Capitol Hill, there’s one who’s never burned us or made us have to defend his words or actions. Of all the senators on Capitol Hill, there is one who comes off at times as aloof, but that’s usually before he respectfully goes for the intellectual jugular. And for obvious reasons, Senator Mitch McConnell should be no where near leadership if Republicans become the majority in the Senate or not.

Republicans and America needs someone whose word can be trusted and can communicate in a manner that is disarming, yet informative and true. The United States Senate needs a leader and America could use a teacher.

The next Republican Leader should be Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana.

He serves as the top Republican of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development, Judiciary Subcommittee on Federal Courts, and Banking Subcommittee on Economic Policy.
