The 1990 United States Senate election in Virginia took place on November 5, 1990. Incumbent Republican U.S. Senator John W. Warner won re-election to a third term.

Spannaus (an affiliate of the controversial Lyndon LaRouche) got 18% of the vote, as she was the only other candidate on the ballot besides Warner.
