    On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced he will step down from his leadership position in November.

    McConnell, who turned 82 this month, is announcing the decision in a speech on the Senate floor.

    The news was first reported by The Associated Press, which obtained a copy of his prepared remarks.

    “One of life’s most underappreciated talents is to know when it’s time to move on to life’s next chapter,” McConnell said in prepared remarks obtained by the AP. “So I stand before you today … to say that this will be my last term as Republican leader of the Senate.”
