US oldest Senator, Mitch McConnell, has frozen for the second time during a press conference after freezing in a previous press conference. 

At a press event in Covington, Kentucky, the 81-year-old paused for more than 30 seconds when asked whether he would run for re-election in 2026.

An aide came to confirm whether he heard the question. He said yes but that was all he said. They had to take him outside. 

“Leader McConnell felt momentarily lightheaded and paused during his press conference today,” a spokesperson said after the incident.

Mr McConnell’s first verbal lapse occurred during a press conference at the US Capitol in Washington DC on 26 July.

There, he paused mid-sentence for approximately 20 seconds, before being ushered away by his fellow Republican senators. 

Mr. Mitch was admitted to the hospital for a week after suffering a concussion and a fractured rib following a fall outside a Washington area hotel in March.

He was transferred to a rehabilitation facility and did not return to the Senate until mid-April.
