Hanging With the Filibuster Pivot

Randall Strahan
Published Online: 2011-01-03 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1540-8884.1482

This essay takes Richard Fenno’s concept of the senatorial career and Keith Krehbiel’s generalization about the importance of the pivotal 60th senator as points of departure for an account of a day spent on Capitol Hill with Senator George LeMieux (R-FL) in July 2010. The goal of the essay is to describe a day in the career of a senator who took full advantage of opportunities presented by being the pivotal senator on a major piece of legislation.

Keywords: Senate; filibuster
