NPP #2: Seniority in the Senate

As a part of a daily series called Non-Political Politics (NPP), Yusoof Monawvil posts daily updates on the obscure, quirky, and unconventional aspects of the United States’ key political institutions—in an undoubtedly non-political manner


Senior Senator Decade of Entry
Today’s map features each Senior Senator’s decade of entry by state. Unsurprisingly, the most senior of Senators is Vermont’s Patrick Leahy, followed by the current President Pro Tempore—Utah’s Orrin Hatch and Mississippi’s Thad Cochran. On the other end, we have Alabama’s Luther Strange, appointed earlier this year by former Governor Bentley to fill Sessions’ seat.

At the other end of the spectrum, Cory Gardner (43 years) and Michael Bennet (52 years) give Colorado the title of youngest Senate delegation with a mean age of 47.5 years.
