In 1924, Robert LaFollete represented the Progressive Party and ran against major party candidates Calvin Coolidge and John W. Davis. The attorney and former senator from Wisconsin unsuccessfully sought the Republican and Progressive Party presidential nominations several times during his life.
During the 1924 race, he won the Wisconsin electoral vote and reaped nearly 6 million popular votes. He died a year later.
