ⓘ 1940 United States Senate election in Arizona

The 1940 United States Senate elections in Arizona took place on November 5, 1940. Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Henry F. Ashurst ran for reelection to a sixth term, but was defeated in the Democratic primary to challenger Ernest McFarland.

Twenty-eight years of a democratic President, Henry F. Ashurst, was great and not to start an aggressive campaign to retain his seat. While Ashurst remained in Washington, D.C., Mcfarland canvassed the state, giving speeches on water issues and world war II in Europe. He defeated Ashurst in the primary and went on to win the General election, defeating Republican Challenger Irving A. Jennings.
