Serving in the United States Senate has been the greatest privilege of my life.
I'm president of the Senate. I'm not a neophyte when it comes to understanding political alignments and misalignments.
I'm not going to run for Senate and I'm not going to run for Governor. I'd like to put those rumors to rest.
The Senate is a place filled with goodwill and good intentions, and if the road to hell is paved with them, then it's a pretty good detour.

I've been outspent by my opponents every time I've run for U.S. Senate.
I'm one of the only members of the U.S. Senate who isn't a millionaire. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with being a millionaire. But there ought to be a little economic diversity in the Senate and I try to provide it.
I loved being in the Senate. That was a wonderful experience.
The Appropriations Committee in the Senate is out of control, out of control on spending.
When a member of the House moves over to the Senate, he raises the IQ of both bodies.
