  • Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, a Republican from Ohio who served in the Ohio Senate and then in the United States Senate, where he played a minor role. With the Republican convention near deadlock, Harding was chosen as an inoffensive compromise candidate in the 1920 election. He brought on board leading advertising experts, especially Albert Lasker, to publicize his presidential appearance and conservative promises. He promised America a "return to normalcy", with an end to violence and radicalism, a strong economy, and independence from European intrigues. Harding represented the conservative wing of the GOP in opposition to progressive followers of the late Theodore Roosevelt and Senator Robert M. LaFollette, Sr. He defeated Democrat and fellow Ohio newspaper publisher James M. Cox with the largest popular vote landslide in presidential history. Harding sought out the "best minds" in his cabinet, including Andrew Mellon at Treasury, Herbert Hoover at Commerce and Charles Evans Hughes at State. He also rewarded his friends and contributors, known as the Ohio Gang, with powerful positions. Wikipedia
