The 2002 United States Senate election featured a series of fiercely contested elections that resulted in a victory for the Republican Party, which gained two seats and thus a narrow majority from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate. Senators who were elected in 1996, known as Senate Class 2, were seeking reelection or retiring. The election was held on November 5, 2002. The Democrats had originally hoped to do well, since the economic boom from the 1990s had been slowing, and the incumbent party historically loses seats in midterm elections, particularly when economic news is bad.

However, the open seats were all in the South, and the Republicans found fairly strong candidates who were able to hold all four.
