Move over Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, and make way for Jeff Sessions. Even though Cruz and Paul commanded the U.S. Senate floor for hours on end in 2013, the two Republicans are not the top talkers of the year. Sessions, an Alabama Republican, logged the most speaking time in the Senate last year, according to a C-SPAN analysis reported by the Los Angeles Times. Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, spoke for 39 hours last year, according to C-SPAN's record through December.
