ⓘ 1952 United States Senate election in Arizona

The 1952 United States Senate election in Arizona was held on November 4, 1952. Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader Ernest McFarland ran for re-election to a third term, but was defeated by the Republican nominee and future candidate for President of the United States, Barry Goldwater.

Goldwater ran an aggressive campaign against the entrenched Democrat, accumulating more than fifty thousand air miles in his journeys about the state during which he made more than six hundred speeches. He defeated Mcfarland in the General elections with minimal interruption from 6.725 votes out of approximately 260.000 caste, which Goldwater is partly due to the unpopularity of President Harry S. Truman and the support of popular Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy. Goldwater also began efforts to get out the vote in the Northern part of the state, knowing that the margin of victory is slim, and has received support from the Republican party campaign organizations and a number of prominent members of the party.

The elections marked the end of a Senate career of Ernest Mcfarland, who was first elected in 1940 and served as co-chair of the Joint Committee on Navajo-Hopi Indian administration in addition to Senate majority leader. Later he was elected Governor of Arizona in 1954 and he unsuccessfully ran for his former Senate in 1958.
