Philip Schuyler

The 1797 United States Senate election in New York was held on January 24, 1797, by the New York State Legislature to elect a U.S. Senator (Class 1) to represent the State of New York in the United States Senate. Incumbent Senator Aaron Burr's name was not placed into nomination for a second term. Former Senator Philip Schuyler was elected.


Democratic-Republican Aaron Burr had been elected in 1791 after the Assembly rejected incumbent Philip Schuyler.

At the State election in April 1796, Federalist majorities were elected to both houses of the 20th New York State Legislature which met from November 1 to 11, 1796, at New York City, and from January 3 to April 3, 1797, at Albany, New York.


Ex-U.S. Senator (in office 1789-1791) Philip Schuyler, now a State Senator, ran again as the candidate of the Federalist Party.


Schuyler was the choice of both the State Senate and the State Assembly, and was declared elected.
