Robert Taft



Ohioan Robert Taft, son of President William Howard Taft, was known as "Mr. Republican," a title that reflected his prominence as a powerful leader in the Senate but also characterized the values of the middle America he represented and held dear. His isolationist position prevented him from gaining the Republican nomination for president in either 1948 or 1952, but he remained influential.
