A little history: Only two sitting senators were ever elected president.

From Political Junkie by Ken Rudin:

When was the last time two incumbent senators squared off for the presidency?

A: Never before. As it is, only two sitting senators were ever elected president: Warren Harding (R-OH) in 1920 and John Kennedy (D-MA) in 1960.

In my local paper, it says no one was ever elected President of the USA governor,
that did not hold before election the office of:
governor, US House Rep, General, or Cab. Secretary. Is it true then that no one who was only a Senator has been elected Pres.?
