Final Jeopardy Explanation – Wednesday, February 28 2024

In 1959, Bob Bartlett and Hiram Fong each secured the title of “Senior Senator” through winning a coin flip. This unusual method of decision-making was employed to resolve the question of seniority for Bartlett and Fong, who were simultaneously entering the U.S. Senate to represent the newly admitted states of Alaska and Hawaii, respectively.

Seniority in the Senate is a significant status that can affect committee positions, office space allocation, and the order of floor speaking. The coin tosses were a simple yet effective way to determine who would be granted the alliterative title of “Senior Senator” from each of their states.
