    PA's longest serving Senator first elected in 1980 and defeated in the Dem primary (after he switched to Dem in 2009) in 2010. You may remember him grilling Anita Hill in the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings or deciding to vote against Robert Bork in 1987 after Reagan nominated him (and Spector was a Republican). Died of non-Hodgkins lymphoma which recurred in late August for the Senator.

    He was a good litigator.
