Mitch McConnell was hardly challenged in his bid for a fourth term in the U.S. Senate.

McConnell easily defeated Democratic challenger Lois Combs Weinberg in yesterday's election. McConnell is the first Kentucky Republican elected to four consecutive Senate terms.

McConnell is already the fifth-longest serving Kentucky senator. The completion of a new six-year term would make him second only to Democrat Wendell Ford in longevity.

McConnell was introduced to cheering supporters by his wife, Elaine Chao, who is labor secretary in President Bush's cabinet.

Weinberg called McConnell to congratulate him less than an hour after polls closed statewide.
