The Senate Minority Leader is a member of the United States Senate who is elected by the party conference which holds the minority in the Senate to serve as the chief Senate spokesperson for his or her party and to manage and schedule the legislative and executive business of the Senate. By custom, the Presiding Officer gives the Minority Leader priority in obtaining recognition to speak on the floor of the Senate.

The term Floor Leader refers to both the Majority Leader and the Minority Leader.
