3. What determines how many more terms they can run for?

I did not know that there were term limits for US Senate.

7. Who says?

That's not in the constitution.

No federal term/age limits for congress/senate.

8. Look at the senior US Senators that died while in office.

Byrd-WV was in his 9th term when he died at the age of 92. He never got a chance to enjoy voluntary retirement.
Thurmond-SC was able to enjoy his 100th birthday while he was still a member of the US Senate and Trent Lott-MS made a fool of himself at Thurmond's 100th birthday party.

9. In other words, there are no term/age limits for congress critters.

So their age has nothing to do with them running for another term.

Sheesh!

6. That's what I thought.

The only federal term limit is for POTUS.
