To begin with, Mitch McConnell was raised in Georgia and Kentucky, and was educated at duPont Manual High School. He graduated from the University of Louisville in 1964 earning a degree in political science, and then from the University of Kentucky in 1967 having majored in Law. He had also enlisted in the Army, however, he was subsequently rejected for medical reasons.

Having a look at his political career, Michael McConnell first worked with Senator John Sherman Cooper, then as an assistant to the Senator Marlow Cook. From 1978 to 1984, he worked as the judge of Jefferson County, Kentucky. In 1984, he was the only Republican candidate to beat an incumbent Democratic senator and was elected Senator from Kentucky to the US Senate, being re-elected three times with large majorities which proved that he iss still a very popular leader.

Holding the position of the Vice -Chairman of the Republican senators group in the Senate during the 109th Congress, he fiercely criticized the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, known as McCain-Feingold law aimed at limiting expenditures on election advertising. He even filed an application before the Supreme Court, citing the anti-constitutional nature of the law. However, it was rejected by the Court in the case McConnell v. Federal Election Commission (December, 2003). Still, these efforts were evaluated by audiences and the popularity of McConnell expanded as he managed to attract those who had doubts before. In November 2006, McConnell was elected by Republican senators as head of the Republican minority in the Senate for the 110th Congress, succeeding Bill Frist who was not a candidate. In 2008, he won the Senate election defeating his rival Bruce Lunsford, and in 2014 he won against the businessman Matt Bevin. On the whole serving in the Senate has increased the total size of Mitch McConnell net worth and popularity considerably.

Furthermore, McConnell serves on the Board of Selectors of Jefferson Awards for Public Service. He is the founder of the James Madison Centre for Free Speech that is the organization of legal defence located in Washington D.C., USA.

Finally, in the personal life of the politician, Mitch McConnell has been married to Elaine Chao since 1993, the Secretary of Labour in the government of George W. Bush. Prior to this, he was married to Sherrill Redmon (1968 – 1993) who gave birth to three daughters of McConnell. He is a staunch Baptist.
