Background

Kyl was born in Oakland, Nebraska, the son of John Kyl, a United States House of Representatives U.S. Representative for Iowa. Kyl earned a bachelor's degree in 1964 from the University of Arizona, graduating with honors. There he became a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. He then earned a law degree in 1966 at the University of Arizona, and served as editor-in-chief of the Arizona Law Review. Before entering politics, he was a lawyer and lobbyist with Jennings, Strouss & Salmon in Phoenix, Arizona. Kyl is married to Caryll Collins, with whom he has had two children, Kristine Kyl Gavin and John Kyl, as well as four grandchildren.


Political career

As chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, he is one of six members of the Senate Republican Leadership.


In February 2006, Kyl joined Senator Lindsey Graham in filing an amicus brief in the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld case, which appears to have been an attempt to mislead the Supreme Court by presenting an “extensive colloquy” added to the Congressional record but not included in the Dec 21st debate as evidence that "Congress was aware" that the Detainee Treatment Act would strip the Supreme Court of jurisdiction to hear "pending cases, including this case" brought by the Guantanamo detainees..[2] Lindsey Olin Graham (born July 9, 1955) is an American politician from South Carolina. ...

In April 2006, Kyl, along with the state's senior senator, John McCain, was selected by TIME as one of "America's 10 Best Senators"; the magazine cited his successful behind-the-scene efforts as head of the Republican policy committee.[3] John Sidney McCain III (born August 29, 1936) is the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona, having served since 1987. ...

2006 re-election campaign

On November 7, 2006, Kyl defeated real estate developer and former Arizona Democratic Party chairman Jim Pederson in the race to claim Arizona's junior Senate seat [4].

Jim Pederson is a businessman, co-founder of the commercial development firm The Pederson Group, and was the Chairman of the Arizona Democratic Party from 2001 to 2005. ...


The race was one of the most expensive in Arizona history. As of May 7th, Kyl's campaign had raised over $9 million primarily from private donations and large fundraising dinners. Pederson's campaign raised over $5 million primarily through a dinner event with former President Clinton and a $2 million donation from Pederson himself.


A major issue in the campaign was combating illegal immigration. While in the Senate, Kyl co-sponsored legislation that would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave the country. Once there, they could apply for permanent residence or be guest workers.[5] Since this legislation was opposed by Senator McCain, Pederson has tried to use the issue as a way of allying with McCain and dividing the Republicans in Arizona.[6] Controversy also arose when each candidate accused the other of supporting the amnesty provisions in a 1986 immigration bill, although both candidates deny ever supporting those provisions. [7] This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


Kyl appeared in the U.S. national news near the end of the campaign as an example of a case where some bloggers were attempting to influence search engine results for searches on Kyl's name, using Google bombs. [8] Blogger can refer to at least two things: Blogger, one who maintains a blog Blogger. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


When the Senate resumes January 3, 2007, Kyl will have the added responsibilites as Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, making him the No. 3 Republican in the Senate. The Senate Republican Conference is the formal organization of the (currently) 51 Republican Senators in the United States Senate. ...


Online Gambing Ban

Along side excongressman Jim Leach, Jon Kyl was a major House supporter of Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 . The Act was passed at midnight the day Congress adjourned before the 2006 elections. Prior to it being added to the bill, the gambling provisions had not been debated by any Congressional committee.[9] However, it was added in Conference Report 109-711 (submitted at 9:29pm on September 29, 2006), which was passed by the House by a vote of 409-2 and by the Senate by unanimous consent on September 30, 2006. Due to H. Res. 1064, the reading of this conference report was waived.

This is seen by liberals and libertarians alike as pandering for the support of the Evangelical Christian Right base just prior to the 2006 mid-term elections[11]. It is also worth noting that 80% of Americans were against the bill. [12] It has been suggested that Conservative Christianity be merged into this article or section. ...
