While the political chattering classes are waiting with bated breath to hear potential candidates’ plans for 2012, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is time-traveling to 2014, telling Politico that he will seek re-election to a sixth term.

Mitch McConnell, Senate, Minority Leader, 2014“I’m not planning on running — I am running,” says McConnell, 68.  “I’ve never been someone who has started late or who agonized publicly over whether I was going to run. I feel like I’m at the top of my game, at my peak effectiveness and I certainly am going to run again in 2014.”

McConnell is unlikely to face a strong Democratic opponent. Democrats hold just two of the Bluegrass State’s six House seats — Reps. John Yarmuth and Ben Chandler. Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear’s first term ends in 2012.
