Who Leads The Senate???

Hello Fellow Americans,

We thought we finished our section explaining the Senate, but there was an overwhelming response to go over each section of leadership in the Senate and we didn’t want to disappoint. So, today we’ll be discussing the 6 sections of leadership within the Senate.

Let’s Get Started…

 

President

 

That’s right, the Senate has an overarching president to deal with daily operations such as tie breaking when voting on new laws.The person in charge of this position is the U.S. vice president (Mike Pence).

 

President Pro Tempore

 

This is a backup in the event the president is unable to attend a meeting in which a new law has to go into effect. Currently the position is filled by Senator Chuck Grassley. 

 

Majority Leader

 

The Majority Leader is elected by the political party with the most Senators. Right now, it’s Republican Mitch McConnell, he has significant powers in the Senate that include setting the agenda, scheduling debates and voting amongst senators.

 

Minority Leader

The Minority Leader is elected by the political party with the second most Senators. Currently filling the position is democrat Chuck Schumer.

 

Majority Whip

 

This member acts as an assistant to the majority leader and keeps the party along the voting lines to come to an efficient verdict that follows their political morals and affiliation. Currently holding this title is republican John Thune.

 

Minority Whip

 

This member acts as an assistant to the minority leader and keeps the party along the voting lines to come to an efficient verdict that follows their political morals and affiliation. Currently holding this title is democrat Dick Durbin.

 

So, these are the people who aide in keeping together and leading the Senate in order to make the United States run smoothly. Let us know in the comments if you have any additional questions on the Senate and maybe we’ll include them in the next blog.

 

See You Later Patriots!!!
