Trent Lott (R-MS)****
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)*****
Richard Shelby (R-AL)******
John Sununu (R-NH)*******
Craig Thomas (R-WY)

By the numbers:
• 15 Republicans:

• 5 Southern Senators
• 5 Western Senators
• 2 Midwest Senators
• 1 Pacific Senator
• 2 Eastern Senators (Both from NH --- no suprise there)
*Alexander ran for president like 6 times and never got any traction, despite wearing flashy plaid shirts.
***Can you believe there is actually a United States Senator named Crapo? It's like his name is an indicator of his worth!
****Lott was ousted as Senate Majority Leader after making inappropriate comments.
*****Murkowski was appointed by her father Frank Murkowski to fill the seat left vacant after he was elected Governor of Alaska. [How do spell nepotism? M-u-r-k-o-w-s-k-i. Or Clinton. Or Bush, or Dole, or Kennedy, or Sununu.]
******Shelby was a Democrat that flipped sides when the Republicans won control of the Senate in 1994.
*******Sununu is the son of former NH Governor John Sununu, Sr., who was ousted as George H.W. Bush's chief of staff after making inappropriate use of government transportation.
