- Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell has been absent from Capitol Hill for weeks following a serious fall that hospitalized him.
- Now multiple sources confirm that Senators John Barrasso of North Dakota, John Cornyn of Texas and John Thune of South Dakota are actively reaching out to fellow Republican senators in efforts to prepare for an anticipated leadership vote that would occur upon announcement that McConnell would be retiring from his duties as leader, and presumably the Senate itself.
- McConnell fell at a dinner event for the Senate Leadership Fund on March 8 at the Waldorf Astoria, formerly the Trump Hotel, in Washington, DC. He suffered a concussion, and only after being treated at a hospital and at his home did murmurs begin that he might be unable to return to the Senate.
