Former Governor Mike Huckabee told the “Todd Starnes Show” it’s time for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to “step aside” for new GOP leadership.

Huckabee surprised himself by telling host Todd Starnes this is the first time that he has called for McConnell to step aside.

Should McConnell step aside for Senate leadership?

“I think it’s time for Mitch to step aside,” Huckabee said.

“He went in and tried to upend some of the candidates we had. It’s not his job to pick the nominees for each state. It’s the voters,” he explained.

“He could’ve helped when he hurt it,” Huckabee added. “I think it’s time to clean house, start over and figure out how to win and save the country.”

McConnell told reporters Tuesday, “I think the outcome is pretty clear. I have the votes. I will be elected. The only issues is whether we do it sooner or later.”

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), who is the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, announced Tuesday to colleagues he is running to unseat McConnell.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said, “We should not have a Senate GOP leadership vote until we have a clear explanation for why our 2022 campaign efforts failed AND until we have a clear understanding of the political & policy direction for the GOP Senate moving forward.”

Scott added, “The status quo is broken. We owe it to our voters to have a real debate about the priorities & direction of the Republican Conference.”
