Historians view the four-way 1912 election as one of the most interesting in American history. Former president Theodore Roosevelt formed his Bull Moose Party and ran on "New Nationalism," a program of government regulation of corporations. Eugene Debs ran as a socialist candidate; President William Howard Taft ran for reelection as the Republican candidate. Woodrow Wilson, the Democratic Party nominee, ran on a reform platform known as the "New Freedom," which pledged to break up concentrations of wealth and power and restore competiveness to the economy.
