Midterm elections, which are held around the halfway point of a president’s four-year term in office, were held this year on November 2, 2010. In addition to voting for state governors and members of the House of Representatives, people vote for senators. This year, 37 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate were up for election. Let’s see who makes up our current U.S. Senate!

SENATE WEALTH:

Two-thirds (66/100) of U.S. Senators are millionaires!

Wealthiest Senator: Herb Kohl, the Democratic Senator from Wisconsin, has a net worth estimated at $215 million!

WHERE ARE THE WOMEN?

Count the women in the picture. Women make up about 50 percent of the U.S. population. What percentage of the Senate are they?
