Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called for embattled Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) to resign from his seat Tuesday evening, joining a growing chorus of Republican lawmakers seeking the ouster of the convicted felon.
McConnell is the third vulnerable Republican lawmaker this cycle to call for Stevens’ resignation, joining Sens. Norm Coleman (Minn.) and Gordon Smith (Ore.). The GOP presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), and vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, have also called on Stevens to resign, as has Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).
