Chuck Schumer Named U.S. Senate Minority Leader

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) was elected Wednesday leader of the Senate Democratic minority, making the seasoned senator from Brooklyn a key check on Republican control of Congress and the White House. As Senate minority leader, Schumer is up against a 51-48 GOP majority that will likely gain one more seat in a Louisiana runoff election next month. But because Senate rules require 60 votes to end debate on bills before legislation can be passed with a simple majority vote, Schumer and the Democratic caucus are effectively the last stand against President-Elect Donald Trump’s agenda.
