At 43 Hours, Texas Senator Set Filibuster Record in '77

Thirty-six years before U.S. Sen. Rand Paul held a nearly 13-hour filibuster, a Texas Senator filibustered for 43 hours in the Texas Senate, setting a world record at the time.

USA: 94 YEAR OLD STROM THURMOND BECOMES LONGEST SERVING SENATOR

English/Nat

The oldest member of the U-S Senate reached yet another milestone on Sunday when he became the United States' longest serving senator.

But, despite the fact that South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond has spent nearly 42 years in Congress, he has no intention of retiring any time soon.

Ninety-four-year-old South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond already holds the record as the oldest member to ever serve in Congress.

On Sunday, he broke another record - that of Senate's longest serving member.

Bantering with reporters at a celebratory press conference last week, Thurmond said time had moved too quickly.

But, he added, he still felt like a million bucks.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
It's passed too fast for me. 94 years old...I don't look 94 years old!
SUPER CAPTION: Senator Strom Thurmond - Republican, South Carolina

Thurmond was sworn into the Senate on 5 January 1955.

On Sunday, he will have spent 41 years, nine months and 31 days there - longer than any other member has ever served.

Born in 1902 - when Theodore Roosevelt was president - Thurmond's political odyssey has been remarkable, to say the least.

He's been a Democrat, a Dixiecrat, a governor and a presidential candidate.

He ran for President against Truman in 1948.

He was once a well-known segregationist - and then became the first Southern senator to ever hire black staffers.

Thurmond told reporters the best part about being a Senator was never knowing what each new day would bring him.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
The challenges are unending. I've been here for about 42 years, and every day, there are new challenges. I like challenges.
SUPER CAPTION: Senator Strom Thurmond - Republican, South Carolina

The South Carolina senator walks stiffly these days, he can't always hear very well and staffers have to guide him through committee sessions.

But even though many Republicans say privately that Thurmond is too old for his job, no one expects him to step down.

What's the secret to Thurmond's longevity?

He says genes count for a lot but attributes his winning health to a good diet, daily exercise and an optimistic attitude.

And when asked how he would like to be remembered, he had this to say:

SOUNDBITE: (English)
As one who cares. One who cares about his family. One who cares about his friends. One who cares about his state and nation.
SUPER CAPTION: Senator Strom Thurmond - Republican, South Carolina

Thurmond will be 100 years old when his term finishes in 2002.

He says he won't run for office again.

#6 Percival Baxter



#5 DeWitt Clinton



#4 George Romney


#3 William Seward


#2 Huey Long



Yeah, I know...he’s turned into a meme, and he still is a controversial figure, but the more I’ve learned about Huey Long over the years, the more I appreciate him. Governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932, today he is known as your standard populist...or even demagogue. And that’s fair, he often told people what they wanted to hear, but I think he really believed what he said. When he ran for governor, he ran under the slogan “every man a king, but no one wears a crown.” His whole thing was that the rich were exploiting the poor in his state, so it was time the poor finally got their due. He campaigned in the rural areas of the state often neglected by the New Orleans and Baton Rouge elite. It’s important to realize that in 1928, during a time of widespread poverty and 75% illiteracy in Louisiana, a poll tax and literacy tests kept most of the poor from voting in the state. But Long handily won in the election thanks to those rural voters, and he scared the crap out of the political establishment, especially with all this talk of taxing the rich more.

Long got a bad rap since he did fire many of his opponents once in office. Loyalty was huge to him. But once he consolidated his power, he got lots done, creating a free textbook program for schoolchildren and building up roads, bridges, hospitals, and schools. He literally would show up announced to the Senate or House to almost bully his legislation through when opponents tried to block it. He didn’t feel bad, though, since these opponents were usually funded by business interests.

#1 Robert La Follette

Robert La Follette cared. And he was extremely influential. Governor of Wisconsin from 1901 to 1906, La Follette was one of the key figures of the entire Progressive Era. He became the poster child of “The Wisconsin Idea,” which called for the breaking up of monopolies and trusts and an end to out of control income inequality. La Follette also believed it was due time that democracy had expanded in the country. As governor, he was able to weaken the railroad monopoly by taxing and regulating the industry. He also made direct primary elections a thing and reformed the state civil service.

Fighting Bob was also a charismatic speaker who inspired tens of thousands. #bestgovernors #ushistory #usgovernors
