William F. Knowland

Elected U.S. Senator

Clair Engle

The 1958 United States Senate election in California was held on November 4, 1958.

Incumbent Senator William F. Knowland opted not to run for re-election, choosing instead to run for election as Governor. Incumbent Governor Goodwin Knight exchanged places with Knowland and lost to U.S. Representative Clair Engle in the midst of a national landslide for the Democratic Party.

This was one of ten seats Democrats gained from the Republican Party in 1958, part of a record swing (including the elections of new Senators from Alaska and Hawaii).
