The North Carolina United States Senate election of 1960 was held on 8 November 1960 as part of the nationwide elections to the Senate. The general election was fought between the Democratic incumbent, B. Everett Jordan, and the Republican nominee, Wilkes County attorney and 1956 Republican gubernatorial nominee Kyle Hayes. It was Jordan's first election to a full term, as he had been elected in a 1958 special election to complete the term of Kerr Scott, who had died in office. The simultaneous victories of Jordan, gubernatorial nominee Terry Sanford and presidential nominee John F. Kennedy marked the last time Democrats won all three top contests in North Carolina on the same day until 2008.
|Democratic||B. Everett Jordan||793,521||61.44|
To win the Democratic nomination for a full term, Jordan had to turn back a strong challenge from Addison Hewlett, the speaker of the state House of Representatives.
|Democratic||B. Everett Jordan||324,188||54.25|
Kyle Hayes ran unopposed for the Republican nomination.
