ⓘ 1892 United States Senate election in West Virginia

The United States Senate elections of 1892 and 1893 were elections which, corresponding with former Democratic President Grover Clevelands return to power, had the Republican Party lose nine seats in the United States Senate and lose its majority to the Democratic Party. The Democratic majority, however, was minimal and didnt last past the next Congress.

As this election was prior to ratification of the seventeenth amendment, senators were chosen by the legislative assemblies of the States.
