WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Kentucky's senior senator is taking a victory lap after Tuesday's mid-terms.
Calling it a "good morning for Senate Republicans", Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Tuesday was a win for the party despite losing control of the U.S. House.
McConnell says the contentious confirmation process for Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh served as a catalyst in gaining seats in the Senate.
He shrugged off any concerns on the change of power in the House and said he was prepared to work with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
McConnell offered words of caution to Democrats who are mulling impeachment proceedings against President Trump saying Republicans saw their numbers drop and then President Clinton's rise in 1998.
