WASHINGTON, DC (WKZO) -- U.S. Representative John Dingell is officially the longest-serving member of Congress.

The 86-year-old Democrat from Dearborn marks 57 years, five months and 26 days of continuous service on Capitol Hill Friday, surpassing the previous record of the late Senator Robert C. Byrd from West Virginia.

Dingell won a special election in December of 1955 to replace his father, who died in office.
