Previous United States Senators

Can you name the former senators who were holding their respective seats before the current incumbent was elected/appointed?
Accurate as of January 14th, 2019
Interim appointments count, but I am accepting the name of the senator that vacated his seat as well
The "Previous Senate" would be a 50-50 split (with control given to the party of the Previous Senate President, Joe Biden).
