Minority Leader of the Senate
The Minority Leader of the Senate (frequently referred to as Senate Minority Leader) is the United States Senator who is elected to lead the minority party in the United States Senate. Their job is to be the chief Senate spokesmen for their party. In recent years it has become more common for the leader of the minority party to be referred to as the "Leader" of his party in order to reduce the implication that "Minority" connotes of lesser power. As an example, it is said that former Senator Bob Dole preferred the title "Senate Republican Leader" while serving as Minority Leader. The current Senate Minority Leader is Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
