In 1896, the Republicans nominated William McKinley for president. McKinley and the Republican Party advocated for the continued use of a stable, gold-backed dollar and protective tariffs to pull the country out of its economic depression. Supporters touted McKinley and his twin campaign themes of "Sound Money" and "Protection." It must have worked -- McKinley won.
