Clement J. Zablocki represented Milwaukee County in the Wisconsin State Senate from 1943 to 1948 and in the House of Representatives from 1949 to 1983. His overwhelming popularity made him a power broker in Wisconsin, as he helped elect William Proxmire and Gaylord Nelson to state offices and John F. Kennedy to the presidency. Zablocki helped change the House Foreign affairs Committee from an insignificant panel to an important power base. His career continued through the Vietnam war and Ronald Reagan's presidency, until Zablocki's death in 1983.
