Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced Wednesday morning he will join Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to try and postpone Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) scheduled leadership vote on Wednesday.
“Today I will try to postpone the GOP Senate leadership vote,” Rubio said. “A vote won’t solve our internal differences, it will make them worse.”
“We aren’t going to have genuine unity until we make big changes to both our campaign & legislative efforts,” he added. “That will NEVER happen if we vote today.”
McConnell’s leadership team had scheduled a vote to receive reelection as GOP leader, but Rubio and Cruz have stated they plan to move to postpone the vote until the Georgia Senate runoff is concluded.
