Best Answer

On October 10, 2007: Senate majority floor leader is a Democrat; Senate minority floor leader is a Republican. This may or may not change in the near future. The answer depends on which party held the most seats after the last election; if any senators died in office and were replaced by their home state Governor - who may or may not be from the dead senator's political party; if a senator happens to switch political parties after election (which has hapened).

The majority leader always comes from whichever party has the majority of members in the Senate. Right now (2011), the US Senate is controlled by the Democratic party. The majority leader is Harry Reid (D-Nevada). The Republicans are in the minority, and their leader in the Senate is Mitchell "Mitch" McConnell (R-Kentucky).
