Sessions Was Top Talker in Senate

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) earned the distinction of logging the most speaking time on the Senate floor in 2013, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Sessions spoke for more than 33 hours last year year, "just a few more hours than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who clocked in at roughly 30 hours in 2013."

"That's an impressive distinction considering that Reid opens and closes the Senate most days that it is in session, often making extended opening remarks, while Sessions is a member of the minority party without a formal leadership position."
