Following Senator John McCain’s vote that killed all prospects of repealing Obamacare, calls have begun for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to step down from his leadership post. In particular, Rep. Mo Brooks, running for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat in Alabama, is calling on McConnell to leave his post, branding the Kentucky Senator “Head of the Swamp.”

Rep. Brooks joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo to blast McConnell, calling on him to step down after failing to repeal Obamacare.

The Hill reports:

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is renewing his call for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kent.) to step down from his leadership role after the chamber rejected a scaled-back version of a GOP bill to repeal parts of ObamaCare.

“Unquestionably the leadership at the top is responsible. The buck stops there, that’s why you take on that kind of responsibility,” Brooks said. “And if Mitch McConnell cannot get the job done on this, how is he going to get the job done on the rest of President Trump’s agenda over the next three-and-a-half years? This is a killer.”

“It’s not necessarily anything bad about Mitch McConnell himself personally. But he’s got a job to do, and if he can’t do it then, as ‘The Apprentice’ would say, ‘you’re fired,’ get somebody who can.”

To be sure, it’s not the first time Brooks, who’s running for the Senate seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and currently occupied by Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), has called for McConnell to step down from his leadership role.

He also raised the idea on Wednesday during a policy breakfast at the conservative Heritage Foundation, where he called McConnell the “head of the swamp.” The majority leader is supporting Strange’s Senate bid.
