My explanation:  Ted Kennedy/Bob Byrd vs. pretty much any Republican ticket.

I kind of stole Liberty and Gabu's maps and merged them together in a way:

States with short names (like Iowa) vote Dem (the shortest ones more heavily so) and the states with long names (like North Carolina) vote Rep (the longer ones more heavily so

Ooh, you're good. Smiley

Two Democratic/Independent Senators (because of Vermont)=Red
Two Republican Senators=Blue
In case of a tie, the House delegation is used.

Is it something like this.  The only problems are Florida and Montana I believe.

It's a little simpler than that!

The states are colored in accordance with the longest serving senator?

Yep, the map shows the party affiliations of each state's senior senator.

Does Tennessee have a senior senator?

Bill Frist.

That's right, it's 1992 with a 10% swing to Perot.  I deliberately switched NC to Clinton, because I figured that as Bush only won the state by such a close margin against Clinton, Perot would have pushed Clinton over the top.  I did the same with South Dakota.

I thought he was elected along side Al Gore's replacement.

I'm not sure about that, but Bill Frist was first elected in 1994, and Lamar Alexander in 2002, which makes Frist the longest serving.

Similarly, both Oregon senators were elected in 1996, thanks to a special election.  Ron Wyden is the senior senator, and Gordon Smith is the junior.

I think whichever senator swore in first became the senior senator.  I don't know if that was Frist or Fred Thompson.

Well I'm still not sure then.  But it doesn't matter now, because Bill Frist has longer tenure than Lamar Alexander, which makes him the senior senator.

I was thinking this was the party affiliations of the representatives of each state's last congressional district.  Except that Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin are wrong, so now I don't know.

You're sort of on the right track.  I also incorporated an idea from one of your other maps.

The longest serving representative of each state?

Top: State Senate
Bottom: State House

Correct.

Notice how Maine is the only state where the leading party doesn't have an absolute majority in its House (thanks to 3 Independents and 1 Green).  And also how Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama retain large Democratic majorities in both their Senates and Houses.

I think John Lewis (D) the longest-serving Rep. from GA.

I just checked, and yes he is.  John Lewis was elected in 1986 - six years before four other Georgian Reps.
