Best Answer

Barack Obama served as an Illinois state senator for three terms. According to newspaper reports, his constituents found him to be very available, and committed to helping his district. He then served as a U.S. senator from 2004 to 2008. By most accounts, he was very involved in his senatorial work from 2004 to 2007; but when he decided to run for president, he began spending less time in Washington DC and more time on his campaign.

How many actual work days did obama work in the senate?

143 days of work

How many days was Obama a senator before he declared running for president?

According to an email from right wing blogger Cheri Jacobus: He logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. According to Wrong. That's not the number of days the Senate was in session. From the time Obama was sworn in on Jan. 3, 2005, until the day he announced his exploratory committee on Jan. 16, 2007, the Senate was in session 304 days, according to the Secretary of the Senate's official count. But why only count the number of days the Senate was in session? Senators work even on days when the Senate is not in session. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you don't have a staff meeting that day? And why stop counting on the day Obama formed his exploratory committee? He was still a Senator at that time. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you are thinking about getting another job at the time? The actual number of days that Obama was a Senator is from January 3, 2005 until he was sworn in as President January 20, 2009. That's 1478 days.

How many days has Barack Obama served in the US Senate?

Obama was sworn in as a Senator on January 4, 2005. You can do the counting yourself, but as of today (August 11, 2008) I count 3 years, 7 months, 7 days. As of today, that makes 1,318 days. Actually, this is a gross overstatement. If you consider only the number of work days in the senate from the time of his election until he formed his presidential campaign, Obama served 144 days in the senate. McCain has served just under 2,000. Actually, you undershot it... it was 1413 days :)... the answer was just on a quiz show :D
