1904 Republican National Convention


1904 Republican National Convention

The 1904 National Convention of the Republican Party of the United States was held in the Chicago Coliseum, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, on June 21 to June 23, 1904.

The popular President Theodore Roosevelt had easily ensured himself of the nomination, though a threat had come from the Old Guard favourite Ohio Senator Mark Hanna, the loyal kingmaker in Republican politics. But the senator had died early in 1904 therefore ending all opposition in the Republican Party.

Roosevelt's nomination speech was held by former New York Governor Frank S. Black and it was seconded by Indiana Senator Albert Beveridge. Roosevelt was nominated by 994 votes to none. The other threat to Roosevelt, Indiana Senator Charles Warren Fairbanks was nominated for Vice President.

Platform

The 1904 Republican platform favored the protective tariff, increased foreign trade, the gold standard, expansion of the Merchant Marine and strengthening of the United States Navy; it also praised Roosevelt's foreign and domestic policies.
