15. Menendez took over that Chair position after Democrats in GA crawled over glass

to get us 2 more Senators from a special election, making it a 50-50 Senate, who along with the VP, gave us a "technical majority" and the opportunity to chair the Senate Committees. That position had originally been Biden's back in 2008 and earlier (when Democrats last had control of the Senate) before he was tapped to run for VP by Obama (as a side note).

And he's also only in his own Senatorial position as it is because he basically begged for support when his seat was in serious jeopardy due to his legal troubles and a wealthy GOP opponent, and managed to be running at the right time to get back in as 2018 became a "wave election" year.
