Chris Dodd
Chris Dodd learned the family business at the dining room table of his childhood home. He is the son of the late Senator Thomas J. Dodd, who lost his first bid for the Senate to Prescott S. Bush, father of former President George H.W. Bush and grandfather of President George W. Bush. After graduating from Providence College in 1966, Dodd volunteered for two years with the Peace Corps. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives three times before being elected to the Senate in 1980. In 1999, Dodd married for a second time and had two daughters, prompting Dodd, who will be 64 by the 2008 election, to frequently joke that he is the only candidate who receives mail from both the AARP and diaper services. Dodd has long been known for his work on children's issues, creating the first Children's Caucus in the Senate and authored legislation to support access to safe and affordable child care.
