1892 Democratic Convention

Chicago, IL

June 21 to 23, 1892

Nominated: Grover Cleveland, of New Hampshire for President

Nominated: Adlai E Stevenson, of Illinois for Vice President

Grover Cleveland who had narrowly lost his bid for reelection in 1888 wanted to run again in 1892. He had wide support within the party, with the major objections once again coming from Tammany Hall in New York. They held a snap state convention and nominated one of their own. Despite not having support from his state delegation Cleveland easily won the nomination on the first ballot, at a convention held a the "Wigwam".
