Having assumed the presidency when McKinley was assassinated in 1901, Theodore Roosevelt was already immensely popular when he ran for president in 1904. Picking conservative Senator Charles W. Fairbanks as his running mate, Roosevelt was reelected in a landslide. Two previous highly esteemed Republicans--John C. Fremont (first Republican presidential candidate) and Abraham Lincoln--are also depicted on this button.
