The President Pro Tem of the Senate traditionally goes to the most senior member of the majority party in the Senate, but in January 2023 Dianne Feinstein turned down the job, and Patty Murray was next in line. Three independents presently caucus with the Democrats, giving them an effective 51-49 majority.

NOTE: It took the Republicans 15 ballots and more than three days to reach agreement over the selection of a new Speaker of the House. In early October, however, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was removed as Speaker and three weeks later was replaced by Mike Johnson (R-LA).

The real leaders in each chamber are in bold face.
