ABSTRACT
The article states that with the election of U.S. Senator Trent Lott as Majority Leader, conservatives believe that the U.S. Senate is now in thoughtful hands. Lott had a group of conservatives in for a discussion in the Majority Leader's elegant office suite. This suite was unfamiliar territory for many of them, but Lott greeted them as old friends and allies whom he has planned to rely on for advice and support. The U.S. Senate majority leadership was passed on from former leader Bob Dole to new leader Lott.
