How Did Mitch McConnell Become One Of The Most Powerful People In The World?

Description

Mitch McConnell has been described as "opaque," "drab," and even "dull." He is one of the least popular - and most polarizing - politicians in the country. So how did he win eight consecutive elections? And what does it tell us about how he operates? NPR's Embedded deep dived into the man and the politician. This episode: political correspondent Scott Detrow, Congressional correspondent Susan Davis, and Embedded host Kelly McEvers. Email the show at nprpolitics@npr.org.
