Connecticut Sen. Dodd Marries

June 19, 1999

EAST HADDAM, Conn. (AP) _ One of the U.S. Senate’s most eligible bachelors is eligible no more.

U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., was wed Friday evening to Jackie Marie Clegg, the vice chairwoman and chief operating officer of the Export-Import Bank of the United States,

The couple, who have been dating for about 10 years, were married in a ceremony attended by about 60 guests, mostly friends and family, at the senator’s home.

It was the 55-year-old senator’s second marriage. His first ended in divorce several years ago.

Clegg, who lives in Washington D.C., is from Orem, Utah. She campaigned with Dodd during his most recent re-election campaign last fall, and has accompanied him to several White House dinners.
