The Senate's last WWII veteran, Frank Lautenberg fought for Soviet Jews and against the tobacco lobby.
New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg, whose signature law facilitated a flood of Soviet Jewish emigration just prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union, has died.
Mr. Lautenberg, 89, died Monday morning at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell of complications from viral pneumonia, his office said.
Arlen Specter, the longtime moderate Jewish Republican senator from Pennsylvania whose surprise party switch helped pass President Obama's health-care reforms, has died.
Specter, 82, died Sunday at his Philadelphia home following a long struggle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, his family told The Associated Press.
He was first elected to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania in 1980, and his 30 years as a senator was a record in his state.
