McConnell Suggests He Might Restore Filibuster

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that if he wins re-election and his party gains control of the U.S. Senate, he would run the legislative body differently than Democrats, the New York Times reports.

Said McConnnell: "We are going to treat senators with respect, we are going to work harder and accomplish more. The Senate can be returned to the place of great debates, contentious debates, but where you can still get outcomes on things where you have at least 60 senators."

"While he would not commit to reversing the limit Democrats put on filibustering White House nominees last November, he said the idea would be on the table if Republicans took charge."
