The Cal Ripken of the Senate

Maine Senator Susan Collins made history today by casting her 2,942nd consecutive roll call vote. That surpasses the record set by Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith, who cast 2,941 votes before missing a roll call on Sept. 6, 1968.
"I take very seriously the charge that has been granted to me by the people of Maine, to represent their interests and be their voice in the U.S. Senate," Collins said. [Link]
