The Republican Party selected Benjamin Harrison to run for president in 1888 and 1892. Harrison was a proponent of strong protective tariffs, sound money and pensions for Civil War veterans. He was also the grandson of a William Henry Harrison, the ninth President of the United States. Touting "protection" and his family's political lineage, Benjamin won in 1888, but lost in 1892.
