McConnell Names Sen. Lee as Counsel to Senate Majority Leader

WASHINGTON, D.C.  U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced today that he has appointed Sen. Mike Lee, (R-UT), to serve as a counsel to the Majority Leader in the 114th Congress.

“As a member of the Senate Republican leadership team, Sen. Lee will bring invaluable insight to our conference on issues that affect American families. He is firmly committed to working on increasing jobs and improving the economy for America’s middle class, and getting the Senate back to work,” McConnell said.

Lee said, “Republicans have bold ideas and effective solutions to handle some of the country’s most challenging and persistent problems. I am excited to have the opportunity to put these conservative policy reforms into action, move forward on a positive agenda, and begin restoring trust and transparency in government.”

Lee is one of four counsels to the Majority Leader that McConnell appointed in the 114th Congress. The other three are Sens. Rob Portman (R-OH), Deb Fischer (R-NE), and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV).

As counsel, Sens. Lee, Fischer, Portman and Capito will offer input, guidance and advice to the Republican leadership.
