Senator Alexander: (6:10 p.m.)

  • Spoke in tribute to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
    • "I'd like to take a few minutes to put Senator McConnell's leadership in perspective. That perspective begins in the year 1969. I was 29 years old and working in the Nixon White House. Senator Howard Baker, Jr., of Tennessee said to me, you might want to get to know that smart, young legislative assistant for Marlowe Cook. Marlowe Cook was Kentucky's newly elected Republican senator. That smart, young legislative assistant was 27-year-old Mitch McConnell. If anyone has known him for a long time, the evolution of Mitch McConnell's leadership isn't hard to trace."
