The 1946 United States Senate election in New York was held on November 5, 1946.

Republican nomination



The Republican state convention met on September 4 at Saratoga Springs, New York. Assembly Majority Leader Irving M. Ives was nominated unanimously after General Donovan, facing overwhelming defeat, withdrew that morning and pledged his support to the Republican ticket.[2]

Other nominations

Socialist Labor

The Socialist Labor state convention met on April 7 and nominated Eric Hass for the U.S. Senate.[3] The party filed a petition to nominate its candidates under the name "Industrial Government Party."


The Liberal Party of New York nominated Lehmann by gathering 51,015 signatures and filed a petition to nominate candidates with the Secretary of State on September 2.[4]

American Labor

The American Labor state convention met on September 3 and endorsed Lehman.[5]


The Industrial Government, Socialist and Socialist Workers tickets were not allowed on the ballot because of "defective nominating petitions." The Court of Appeals upheld the decisions of the lower courts.[6]

General election


The whole Republican ticket was elected in a landslide.
