Trump Looks for Challenger to Depose Mitch McConnell as Split Widens

WASHINGTON—Mitch McConnell’s record-long reign as Senate Republican leader has lasted long enough for former President Donald Trump.

Mr. Trump has spoken recently with senators and allies about trying to depose Mr. McConnell and whether any Republicans are interested in mounting a challenge, according to people familiar with the conversations. There is little appetite among Senate Republicans for such a plan, lawmakers and aides said, but the discussions risk driving a wedge deeper between the most influential figure in the Republican Party and its highest-ranking member in elected office.
