Republican - and Freemason - William McKinley (1843-1901) ran for president in 1896 and in 1900, winning both times. McKinley conducted his campaign from his Ohio home in 1896, where he presented speeches to the party delegates who traveled there to hear him. Sadly, McKinley's second term as president was cut short when he was shot by anarchist Leon F. Czolgosz (1873-1901) in September 1901 while shaking hands at a reception at the Pan-American Exposition.
