Historical Election

Once interesting angle of this election that I haven't heard discussed much is that the three remaining contenders for the WH currently occupy U.S. Senate seats. The last time a sitting U.S. Senator was elected to the Presidency was 1960. Prior to that, the only other sitting U.S. Senator to ascend directly to the nation's highest office in the 20th century was Ohio's Warren G. Harding.
