Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tells sits down with ABC's The Note and says that he has the votes to be re-elected as GOP Leader.

“We'll have a mixture of people coming in,” McConnell said on “Top Line.” “First of all, I already have the votes to be re-elected as Republican leader, and will be re-elected. We'll have different kinds of folks. We'll have moderates like Mike Castle [in Delaware] and Mark Kirk [in Illinois]. We'll have people who are experienced like Rob Portman [in Ohio] and Roy Blunt [in Missouri]. And we'll have some brand new people. So I think it'll be a mixture of folks.”

The question of support for McConnell became a growing issue after a WHAS11 interview with GOP primary candidate Rand Paul last year in which Paul refused to choose between McConnell and South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint.
