The 1966 United States Senate elections were elections on November 8,1966 for the United States Senate which occurred midway through the second term of President Lyndon B. Johnson. The 33 seats of Class 2 were contested in regular elections. Special elections were also held to fill vacancies. With divisions in the Democratic base over the Vietnam War,and with the traditional mid-term advantage of the party not holding the presidency,the Republicans took three Democratic seats,thereby breaking Democrats' 2/3rds supermajority. Despite Republican gains,the balance remained overwhelmingly in favor of the Democrats,who retained a 64–36 majority. Democrats were further reduced to 63-37,following the death of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968.
The 1964 United States Senate elections were held on November 3. The 33 seats of Class 1 were contested in regular elections. Special elections were also held to fill vacancies. They coincided with the election of President Lyndon B. Johnson by an overwhelming majority,to a full term. His Democratic Party picked up a net two seats from the Republicans. As of 2023,this was the last time either party has had a two-thirds majority in the Senate,which would have hypothetically allowed the Senate Democrats to override a veto,propose constitutional amendments,or convict and expel certain officials without any votes from Senate Republicans. In practice,however,internal divisions effectively prevented the Democrats from doing so. The Senate election cycle coincided with Democratic gains in the House in the same year.
