That is not true. Mcconnell was Senate Minority Leader when that article was published in October, 2015. He became Majority Leader in January, 2015 after the Republican party gained control of the upper house of the legislature. The humble photo caption is right ("Grimes will face Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.") while the article is wrong.
