Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says voters seem to like divided government.
Republicans boosted their majority in the Senate by knocking out some red state Democrats in the midterm elections. Democrats regained control of the House.
In a Capitol briefing, McConnell said there is room for bipartisan cooperation in a divided Congress.
McConnell thanked President Trump for his help on the campaign trail. He said the controversy over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was an “adrenaline shot” for the Republican base and “very helpful.” Kavanaugh was eventually confirmed to the high court.
