If you were to perform a website for “who is the longest serving member of the Senator,” you will see Democrat Robert C Byrd, 51 years of serves (1959 to 2010; Democratic Daniel K. Inouye , 49 years of serves (1963 to 2012) and Republican Strom Thurmond, 47 years of serves (1954 to 2003) (U.S. Senate: Longest Serving Senators, 2015).
