List of Connecticut senators, with plenty of pictures and photos. List includes current CT senators and all past United States senators of Connecticut. Since the founding of the United States government, Americans have elected two senators per state regardless of the state's population (unlike the House of Representatives). This list of senators from the state of Connecticut goes all the way back to the Founding Fathers. At first, senators were voted into the US Congress by their individual state legislatures. Today though, senators are elected directly by the people. Each pair of senators serve staggered six year terms, with senatorial elections happening every two years.
