He suffered from polio at the age of two and was treated at the Warm Spring Institute for which his family had to spend a substantial sum of money.

He enlisted in the US Army Reserve at Louisville, Kentucky, in March 1967 and had to be discharged on medical grounds after five weeks of training at Fort Knox due to optic neuritis in August 1967.
Mitch McConnell started his political career by interning with Senator John Sherman Cooper in 1964. He later assisted Senator Marlow Cook and was Deputy Assistant Attorney General under President Gerald R. Ford. Having gained experience in the field, he was elected as the Jefferson County Judge/Executive in 1977 and again re-elected in 1981. In 1984, he was elected to the US Senate by a narrow margin against Walter Dee Huddleston of the Democratic Party. He was the first Republican to win in Kentucky since 1968 and the only Republican Senate challenger to win that year, despite Ronald Reagan’s landslide victory in the presidential elections.
In 1990, he again had a narrow victory over former Louisville Mayor, Harvey I. Sloane, by just 4.4% votes. His campaigns were marked by witty posters and interviews that resulted in a more comfortable victory over Steve Beshear in 1996 and Lois Combs Weinberg in 2002.
He again had a narrow victory against Bruce Lunsford in 2008 but came back with a massive majority against Matt Bevin in 2014. He was chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the 1998 and 2000 elections. He was elected as Majority Whip in the 108th Congress in 2003 and was re-elected in 2004. He became the Minority Leader when the Republicans lost control of the Senate in 2006 and came back as the Senate Majority Leader in 2014. During the period that he was a minority leader, he made it clear that his aim was not to let President Obama win a second term.
He is known to be a moderate who supports causes for political gains rather than ideology. As a result, he has been referred to as a ‘Centrist’, who has swayed to the right. Lately, he has opposed collective bargaining and minimum wage increases, which he had earlier supported. This has decreased his popularity ratings in his home state. Unlike most politicians who prefer to be popular among the electorate, McConnell prefers to be seen as the villain who has to face the truth and call a spade a spade. In his foreign policy, he was initially in support of anti-apartheid legislation and better treatment of Muslim refugees. However, he soon changed his views to introduce the Protect America Act of 2007. He was against the time-bound withdrawal of US troops from Iraq and later opposed US military strikes in Syria in 2013. He has been of the view that the United States must maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia, even though the Saudi-led coalition has been accused of war crimes in Yemen. He voted to override President Obama’s veto to pass the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act into law but later criticized the law sighting unintended ramifications. He is an advocate of free speech and has argued that campaign finance regulations reduce participation and competition. He led the movement against the Bipartisan Campaign Reforms Act. He introduced the Common Sense Medical Malpractice Reforms Act in 2002 and was against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ‘ObamaCare’. He supported the Small Business Liability Reforms Act that protected small businesses against litigations and limited the liability of non-manufacturing businesses.
He was against Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from immigrating to the US. He was also against measures that would curb the US economy in order to protect the environment and urged Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Though he criticized Trump’s policies, he endorsed his candidacy after Senator Rand Paul withdrew from the Republican race for the presidency. Today he is one of the most influential Republican leaders. However, he has remained controversial and has to guard against being marginalized by his opponents in the opposition as well as in his own party.
