Democratic senator Chuck Schumer has been elected as the minority leader for the 115th Congress.
The Senate Democrat will replace the retiring Harry Reid in the leadership role.
In his first act as the Senate minority leader, Schumer tapped Senator Bernie Sanders for a junior leadership role, as Democrats prepare to deal with a Republican majority in both houses of the Congress, and Donald Trump’s presidency.
Senate Republicans also chose their leadership for the next congressional session, but they chose to stick with Mitch McConnell of Kentucky as the majority leader.
In the House, Republicans nominated Paul Ryan to retain his role as the Speaker of the House.
