  • Senators serve in the Senate and there are two from each state.
  • Representatives serve in the House of Representatives and the number is determined by population. For example, there are numerous Representatives in New York City while there is only one Representative serving all of Alaska.
  • Representatives are frequently referred to as Congressmen, Congresswomen or Reps.
