WASHINGTON — Americans handed Republicans control of Congress for the first time since 2006, and leading GOP lawmakers pledged in the wake of sweeping victories that they would not screw it up.

"When people choose divided government it doesn't mean they don't want us to do anything," Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters Wednesday. The Kentucky Republican will become Senate majority leader in January. He pledged to change the way the Senate operates to include more debate, more votes, and longer work weeks.
