The results are in. Here are the party leaders:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid leaving his office at the US Capitol.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell speaking at the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC. On the right is his wife, former Secretary Elaine Chao and former Attorney General and Counselor to President Ronald Reagan.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi will continue to lead House Democrats as Minority Leader. Rep. James Clyburn and Rep. Steny Hoyer will serve as Assistant Leaders.
Representative John Boehner of Ohio was, as expected, picked as the new majority’s candidate for Speaker of the House.
The voters are watching.
