US Politics: sitting presidents not renominated. [View all]

Last edited Sat Dec 8, 2018, 08:57 PM - Edit history (1)

I was curious about this as it could apply in 2020.

Apparently itís only happened once to an elected president, Franklin Pierce (14) in 1856.

Others ( John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson and Chester Arthur) were denied nomination but were not elected to the presidency and all had assumed the presidency as VP at the death of the president.
