280 members of the Massachusetts General Court
141 votes needed to win
At the time, Massachusetts elected United States senators by a majority vote of the combined houses of the Massachusetts General Court.
Although Democrats made gains in the 1898 state election, the General Court remained overwhelmingly Republican, assuring Lodge's re-election.
The Republican legislative caucus unanimously re-nominated Senator Lodge by acclamation on January 10, although his chief critic within the party, State Senator Herbert Parsons of Greenfield, did not attend.
|Republican||Henry Cabot Lodge (incumbent)||190||67.86%|
|Democratic||Alexander B. Bruce||72||25.71%|
|Social Democratic||Winfield P. Porter||2||0.71%|
