James Garfield’s stay-at-home strategy kept him at Lawnfield throughout the campaign.

Most of us are familiar with the use of trains and the whistle stops of former presidential campaigns that occurred in the 1800’s,  But the same era was also the heyday of Front Porch campaigns that led to three successful presidential campaigns, James Garfield in 1880, Benjamin Harrison in 1888 and William McKinley in 1896.  

In June of 2008, U.S. Senator, Jeff Sessions, used the Front Porch campaign strategy in his bid for re-election in the Alabama’s Republican Party and received 92 percent of the vote.

In the summer of 1880, the Republican Party was facing a tightly contested presidential election. With the embarrassment of Grant’s tenure as president and the current state of the bad economy associated with Hayes, James Garfield would need to present himself to the people as a different politician to win the Oval Office.

Declaring a new political approach, the Republican Party decided to use a front porch campaign instead of their candidate roaming around the country. Garfield would deliver his speeches right from his own house on the outskirts of Mentor, Ohio. The strategy worked.

Benjamin Harrison, in 1888, from his home in Indianapolis, ran a front porch campaign.  Harrison spoke to any group that came to see him. In the end, Cleveland won the popular vote, but Harrison, a Republican, carried the Electoral College and was put into the White House.

William McKinley Front Porch campaign

During the summer of 1896 William McKinley, another Republican candidate for President, campaigned effectively from his home in Canton, Ohio. His opponent, William Jennings Bryan, conducted a vigorous railroad campaign.

McKinley’s Front Porch campaign consisted of many events staged for the newspapers and he was able to create an impression to voters that they were able to identify with. The effectiveness of his campaign worked well for McKinley and he won the election.
