@kwellscomm Political News —

Leadership changes are being made on the Hill for Democrats. New York Democrat Chuck Schumer will be the new Senate Minority Leader. Democrats chose Schumer in a closed meeting at the Capitol on Wednesday. Schumer noted that the Dems are still processing last week’s election results, which he called unexpected. He said Democrats will be crafting a stronger, bolder message that will focus on economic inequality.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren will be joining the Senate Democratic leadership team.

Vermont’s Senator Sanders made economic inequality a primary focus of his presidential campaign bid–a message that resonated, though he did not win. Warren, the junior senator from Massachusetts, is a rising star in the Democratic ranks. She’s known for her economic sensibilities on behalf of the most vulnerable and for going toe-to-toe with then-GOP Candidate Trump attempting to stop his election to the presidency of the United States. Schumer vowed to vigorously fight incoming President Donald Trump when necessary and to work with him if common ground can be found.  Schumer will replace retiring Minority Leader Harry Reid.

They have a tough job ahead. Republicans will control the Senate, House and White House next year.
