MILWAUKEE (AP) - Wisconsin Sen. Herb Kohl has given his final speech from the Senate floor.
The retiring Democrat delivered farewell remarks Thursday, in a speech that was carried love on CSPAN2.
Kohl took office in 1989 for his first of four terms. The 77-year-old is stepping down after his current term is up Jan. 2.17776312
Kohl serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he chairs the Special Committee on Aging. He also sits on the Senate's appropriations and banking committees.
