Greek Candidates Standing for U.S. Senate, 2020

I've started compiling a list of Greeks standing for election or reelection to the U.S. Senate this year. It's doubtful this is comprehensive so weigh-in with those I've missed.
  • Steve Daines (Republican) - Montana - Sigma Nu
  • John Cornyn (Republican) - Texas - Chi Delta Tau (independent at Trinity)
  • Mike Rounds (Republican) - South Dakota - Lambda Chi Alpha
  • Lindsey Graham (Republican) - South Carolina - Pi Kappa Phi
  • John James (Republican) - Michigan - Alpha Phi Alpha
  • Mitch McConnell (Republican) - Kentucky - Phi Kappa Tau
  • Roger Marshall (Republican) - Kansas - Beta Theta Pi
  • Jim Risch (Republican) - Idaho - Phi Delta Theta

Actually, since the Vice-President is President of the Senate, I guess we can add two more:

-Mike Pence (Republican) - At Large - FIJI
-Kamala Harris (Democrat) - At Large - Alpha Kappa Alpha

Running through Wikipedia. (Note, not all challengers have wikipedia pages)
  • Doug Jones (Democrat) - Alabama - Beta Theta Pi
  • Cory Gardner (Republican) - Colorado - FarmHouse
  • Chris Coons (Democrat) - Delaware - Delta Kappa Epsilon
  • Kelly Loeffler (Republican) - Georgia (Special) - Alpha Gamma Delta
  • Jim Risch (Republican) - Idaho - Phi Delta Theta
  • Mitch McConnell (Republican) - Kentucky - Phi Kappa Tau
  • Lindsey Graham (Republican) - South Carolina - Pi Kappa Phi
  • John Cornyn (Republican) - Texas - Chi Delta Tau (independent at Trinity)
*Added to Wikipedia*
Roger Marshall (Republican) - Kansas - Beta Theta Pi was not in Wikipedia, but I have added it and referenced it to the current chapter Newsletter for the Beta Theta Pi chapter at Kansas State

Steve Daines (Republican) - Montana - Sigma Nu was not in Wikipedia, but I have added it and referenced to Sigma Nu's National website.


*No Reference Found*
John James (Republican) - Michigan - Alpha Phi Alpha I can not find any reference for him being a brother. The best I can find is him as a table sponsor at the 2019 centennial celebration for Gamma Lambda chapter (in Detroit) of Alpha Phi Alpha.

Mike Rounds (Republican) - Montana - Lambda Chi Alpha Can not find a reference for him being a member of Lambda Chi Alpha. Most hits for Rounds and the fraternity are or staffer Tordsen.
