8 Asians

After Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) passed away, Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, was sworn in as the Senate president pro tempore last Wednesday. The position, customarily reserved for the most senior senator in the majority, puts Inouye as third in the line of succession for the presidency, after Vice President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. It also makes him the highest ranking Asian-American in the United States. Inouye, 85, was first elected to the Senate in 1962.
