Senators are elected by their state as a whole; if both Senate seats are contested in one election year, the elections will be separate and all voters in the state will cast votes for one candidate in each of the two races.
Unlike the United States House of Representatives, the Senate has no strict rules regarding debate, and one strategy used by senators to kill a bill is the filibuster, an intentional extension of debate on the bill, which prevents it from coming to a vote.
The senator from each state with the longer tenure is known as the "senior senator" and carries some additional responsibilities to their state's constituents; however, this does not necessarily indicate a hierarchy in which the senior senator has direct authority over the junior senator.
