Sen. Mitch McConnell working on memoir

NEW YORK (AP) — Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, is working on a memoir.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he planned to tell both his personal story, including overcoming polio as a child in Alabama, and the story of his long career in public life.

Known as one of Washington’s savviest politicians, the 73-year-old McConnell said he wanted to share “the lessons” he has learned. He expects to meet with publishers over the summer.
