Lincoln Davenport Chafee is a
former Republican 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.
