Kyl's ascension to Minority Whip makes him the first Arizonan to hold such an influential Senate leadership post since Democrat Ernest W. McFarland served as Senate Majority Leader from 1951 to 1953. Kyl is the only Arizona Republican to hold such a powerful leadership position.
Majority Whip Richard Durbin
Year elected- 1996

Durbin is one of the most liberal members of Congress, and his voting record is very similar to the Democratic caucus position, consistent with his leadership position as Whip, which has the duty of persuading senators to follow the party line in their votes. As a trial lawyer, Durbin has an excellent ability of debating, so much so that his boss, majority leader Harry Reid called him "the best debater" in the U.S. senate.
