"Majority Leader" isn't a position like Speaker of the House or President of the Senate, it's just a ceremonial (albeit massively influential and powerful) position voted on by members of the party.

Technically the Republicans could argue they are still the Majority Party since the Democratic Caucus includes 2 independents and 48 Democrats, but I don't see that happening since it doesn't really matter for any practical purposes.
