American politician who served as a U.S. Representative (1969-1971), U.S. Senator (1971-1989), and the 85th Governor of Connecticut (1991-1995). He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for President in 1980. Though a member of the Republican Party during his time in Congress, he later left the Republican Party and became one of the few third party candidates to be elected to a state governorship in the United States in recent years, doing so on the ticket of A Connecticut Party. As of 2018, Weicker is the last person to have represented Connecticut in the US Senate as a Republican.
