The United States Progressive Party of 1924 was a national ticket created by Robert M. La Follette, Sr. to run for president. It did not nominate candidates for other offices, carried only Wisconsin, and vanished after the election. La Follette had created the "Progressive" faction inside the Wisconsin Republican party in 1900. In 1912 he attempted to create a Progressive Party but lost control to Theodore Roosevelt, who became his bitter enemy. In 1924 the party called for public ownership of railroads, and other leftist causes. La Follette ran with Senator Burton K. Wheeler, Democratic Senator from Montana. The party prepresented a farmer/labor coalition and was endorsed by the Socialist Party of America, the American Federation of Labor and many railroad labor groups. La Follette's run for the presidency under this ticket garnered 17% of the popular vote, but carried only one state (his native Wisconsin). La Follette continued to serve in the Senate as a Republican until his death the following year, and was succeeded in a special election in 1925 by his son, Robert M.
