NPR's Anthony Brooks reports from Providence, Rhode Island on the career of four-term Republican Senator John Chaffee, who died of heart failure Sunday night at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Senator Chafee is being remembered as a moderate consensus builder, in a Senate that's become increasingly partisan and acrimonious. He was 77-years old.
