ERNEST HOLLINGS - (D) of South Carolina - Nov. 9, 1966 to Jan. 3, 2005 - 38 years, 1 month, 25 days: Senator “Fritz” Hollings focused on poverty and hunger as a senator, advocating for a national food-stamp program after doing fact-finding tours of some of his state’s most desperate areas. He was an unsuccessful presidential candidate in 1984. Seen here, Hollings discusses the collapse of Enron during hearings held in December 2001.
