Thanks, Senator McConnell

In the course of a Breitbart News interview on new media, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was asked about his favorite blogs. Among his several mentions, Senator McConnell cited Bench Memos:

I’ve always had a keen interest in the Supreme Court, so I also value the blogs that have popped up over the years on issues relating to the law and the courts. I think Ed Whelan does great work over at Bench Memos, for instance.

I’m grateful for Senator McConnell’s generous comments and for his interest in Bench Memos—and especially, of course, for the excellent job he has done leading the Republican caucus on judicial nominations.
