Rufus King

The 1795 United States Senate election in New York was held on January 27, 1795 by the New York State Legislature to elect a U.S. Senator (Class 3) to represent the State of New York in the United States Senate.


In July 1789, Philip Schuyler and Rufus King had been elected to the U.S. Senate. King had drawn the long term which would expire on March 3, 1795.

At the State election in April 1794, Federalist majorities were elected to both houses of the 18th New York State Legislature which met from January 6 to 14 at Poughkeepsie, New York, and from January 20 to April 9, 1795, at New York City.


King's name was proposed for re-election in the Senate, and passed narrowly with 12 Yeas and 11 Nays.[1]

In the Assembly, two alternatives were proposed: State Senator Thomas Tillotson and Judge John Lawrence.[1]
