Each state selects two senators. In 1913, the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution provided for the direct popular election of senators; prior to this, senators were selected by state legislatures.

Senators of the 107th Congress

The current party distribution of the Senate is as follows:

James Jeffords was elected to the Senate as a Republican, but became an Independent several months later. His change meant a change in leadership of the Senate. (The Republican Party had held leadership because the Vice President, a Republican, had the power to break ties.)
