News and Guts Facebook post: There are signs that Mitch McConnell may be thinking about leaving before his term is up. Perhaps he doesn't want to be around, should Donald Trump run again in 2024.
Me: maybe he knows he's not very healthy (see article) so he decided to finally give up power, trying to cement his legacy.

The Intercept: Mitch McConnell Working With Kentucky Legislature on Senate Exit Strategy
...McConnell has compiled a shortlist of successors in his home state of Kentucky, preparing for the possibility that he does not serve out his full term, Kentucky Republicans tell The Intercept. The list is topped by his protégé, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron, and also includes former United Nations Ambassador Kelly Craft, whose billionaire coal magnate husband is a major McConnell donor, as well as Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams, a former McConnell Scholar.

Under current law, the power to appoint McConnell’s replacement falls to Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear. But new legislation McConnell is pushing in the Kentucky General Assembly would strip the governor of that power and put it into the hands of the state GOP.
