Democratic

The 1932 United States Senate elections in Arizona took place on November 8, 1932. Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Carl Hayden ran for reelection to a second term, again defeating his 1926 challenger former U.S. Senator Ralph H. Cameron in the general election.[1]

Hayden, then U.S. Congressman for Arizona's at-large Congressional district, was elected to his first term in 1926 when he defeated the incumbent Cameron, and would be successfully reelected to his second term in a rematch in 1932, by a wide margin. Candidates from the Socialist and Communist Parties also ran in the election, but did not garner much support, barely registering at 1% or less. This would be Cameron's final attempt at returning to the U.S. Senate, leaving Arizona soon after, and living for a time in both Philadelphia and Los Angeles.[2]
