The Quiz: Which politician led the Bull Moose Party?

A Theodore Roosevelt
B Ross Perot
C Woodrow Wilson

After Roosevelt narrowly lost the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in 1912 to his former protégé, William Howard Taft, he ran in the general election as the candidate of the newly formed Progressive Party. It was popularly called the ‘Bull Moose Party’ because Roosevelt—always quick to emphasize his strength and vigor—boasted that even though he’d lost the Republican primary he felt ‘strong as a bull moose.’

The correct answer to this quiz is Theodore Roosevelt.
