(Reuters) – U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, defending remarks that Barack Obama should be a one-term president, will say on Thursday his party’s goals can be accomplished only when an ally is in the White House.

After Republicans wrested control of the House of Representatives from Democrats and picked up seats in the Senate in Tuesday’s congressional elections, McConnell will also tell the conservative Heritage Foundation that Obama must change course during the last two years of his current term.

“Some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office,” McConnell said in excerpts of a speech he will deliver on Thursday.
