BIO

Lincoln Davenport Chafee is a former United States Senator from Rhode Island and is currently a visiting scholar at Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies.  A Rhode Island native educated at Phillips Academy and Brown, Chafee worked as a professional blacksmith for seven years before entering state politics in 1985. He was a delegate to the Rhode Island State Constitutional Convention, a member of the Warwick, Rhode Island city council, and later the mayor of Warwick. Chafee was appointed to the United States Senate in 1999 upon the death of his father, Senator John Chafee, and was elected to a full six-year term in 2000.

During his time in office, he was a member of the Committee on Foreign Relations and chair of its Subcommittee on Near East and South Asian Affairs, which includes the Middle East.  Senator Chafee was a staunch proponent of active US engagement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and was the deciding vote in preventing the appointment of John Bolton to US Ambassador to the UN.

Senator Chafee lost reelection to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in the Democratic victory of November 2006, despite a 62% approval rating from Rhode Island voters.
