1916 republican Convention
June 7 to 10, 1916
Nominated: Charles Evans Hughes of New York for President
Nominated: Charles W Fairbanks of Indiana for Vice President
Going into the convention Supreme Court Justice Charles Evan Hughes was the clear Republican front runner. Roosevelt supporters hoped that he could be nominated but after two ballots in which favorite sons blocked Hughes from getting the nomination, Roosevelt supporters gave their support to Hughes and he was nominated on the third ballot.
