Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday joined a weekly closed-door meeting of House Republicans to advocate for protecting the sequester spending cuts in the on-going budget negotiations with the Democrats. McConnell, R-Ky., also shared his thoughts on what a Senate Republican majority might look like and how it might function and help the GOP control the legislative agenda during the final two years of President Obama's tenure, a source familiar with the discussion said. Senate Republicans need to flip six Democratic-held seats in next year's midterm elections to take control of the Senate.
