Clifford P. Case (1904–82)
Clifford P. Case was a representative and senator from New Jersey serving five terms in the House of Representatives and four terms in the U.S. Senate. A champion of civil liberties, he ran for the Senate in 1954 as an anti-McCarthy Republican and won. He was one of the few political figures of either party willing to stand up for matters of conscience. During his 34 years in Congress, he spoke in favor of civil rights and served the people of New Jersey based not on the basis of party but what was in their best interests.
