I Want My Party Back - Theodore Roosevelt T-shirt
Materials: polyester, cotton, rayon
Celebrate Theodore Roosevelt's leaving the Republican Party to form his Progressive Party in 1912 with this finely crafted t-shirt. This particular shirt comes in your choice of red or blue with a faded wash.
This shirt is incredibly soft with great drape, stretch, and recovery. Its made from 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon.
In 1912, Theodore Roosevelt attempted to run for a 3rd presidential term as a Republican. Unfortunately, for him, his party no longer wanted him. They nominated the current President—and Teddy's former friend and now-rival, William Taft—to run for President.
In a desperate attempt to beat Taft and get back in to office, Roosevelt formed the Progressive Party. He went on to get 27% of the popular vote, more than Taft, and the highest percentage for any 3rd-party candidate in the history of the United States.
But with a progressively-minded Woodrow Wilson leading the Democratic Party ticket, Roosevelt couldn't win a 3rd term. Wilson took 41% of the popular vote and enough electoral delegates to win the overall election.
