The United States Senate election of 1828 was an election which had the Jacksonian coalition, despite its leader's victory in the presidential election, lose two seats in the United States Senate to the opposing Anti-Jackson coalition.

As this election was prior to ratification of the seventeenth amendment, Senators were chosen by State legislatures.
