References

  1. ^ Goldwater declined to run for re-election in the Class 1 seat, choosing instead to run unsuccessfully for President. He was once again elected to the Senate in 1968, but spent four years out of office. His length of service pauses on January 3, 1965 and resumes January 3, 1969. Thus, he served only 30 years in the Senate, despite finally leaving 34 years after first assumed office.
  2. ^ Kyl retired from the Senate on January 3, 2013, after declining to run for re-election in 2012. Following the death of John McCain, Kyl was nominated by governor Doug Ducey to the vacant seat previously held by McCain on September 4, 2018. Kyl resigned from that seat on December 31, 2018. His length of services pauses on January 3, 2013 and resumes September 4, 2018. Thus, he served only 18 years, 4 months and 1 day in the Senate, despite finally leaving the Senate almost 25 years after he first assumed office.
