Senator Dick Durbin is the 47th US senator from the state of Illinois, the state’s senior senator, and the convener of Illinois’ bipartisan congressional delegation. Durbin also serves as the assistant majority leader in the US Senate. Senator Durbin has been elected to this leadership post by his Democratic colleagues every two years since 2006. In 2004, he was elected as assistant minority leader. Durbin was elected to the US Senate on November 5, 1996, and reelected in 2002 and 2008. He sits on the Senate Judiciary, Appropriations, Foreign Relations, and Rules Committees. He is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee’s
