The 2016 Senate elections occurred at the same time as the 2016 presidential election which saw Donald Trump elected president. Unlike previous years, it was now Republican senators who were under pressure having to defend 24 seats won in 2004 and 2010 in otherwise traditionally Democratic states compared to the Democrats' 10 seats with one being competitive.

With the aid of Trump's surprise coattails Senate Republicans led all but two of their seats but failed to gain any.

Harry Reid, 77, retired as Minority Leader and was replaced by Chuck Schumer.

The overall number of women in the Senate grew from 20 (15D, 6R) to 21 (20D, 5R). There were also the addition of 1 Asian member (Illinois's Tammy Duckworth), 1 Indian American member (California's Kamala Harris), and the first Latina member of the Senate (Nevada's Catherine Cortez Masto).
