Republican Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell was able to amass an extensive list of accomplishments as the Senate’s majority leader during the Trump administration, but he’s already showing he’ll have some power to wield in the minority, too.

Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer has assumed McConnell’s old role as majority leader, taking charge of the 50 Democrats who now have a makeshift majority thanks to the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris. However, McConnell is already getting the best of Schumer in a few important areas of Senate business.
