1796 United States Senate special election in New York

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1796 United States Senate special election in New York was held on November 9, 1796, 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.

Background

Rufus King had been re-elected in 1795 to a second term in the U.S. Senate (1795–1801). On May 23, 1796, he resigned after having been appointed U.S. Minister to Great Britain, leaving the State Legislature to fill the vacancy.

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.

Candidates

United States District Judge for the District of New York John Laurance was the candidate of the Federalist Party.

Result

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