WHAT IS A: U.S. SENATOR

The job of a U.S. Senator is to act on behalf of the people of their state in federal legislative sessions to ensure the voice of the common citizen is heard. People elect their senators with the expectation that they will fight for legislation that is in the best interest of the average citizen. The Senate shares responsibility with the House of Representatives for declaring war, maintaining the armed forces, assessing taxes, regulating commerce, and making all laws necessary for the operation of government.

All states have two senators who represent their state. A U.S. Senator serves a six-year term and has no term limits.
