The withdrawal of two New Jersey residents from the campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 keeps Woodrow Wilson’s record as the last Garda Stater to win the presidency.

Booker resigned on January 13, 2019, and former MP John Delaney (D-Maryland) resigned on January 30, 2020.

Daly grew up in Wood Ridge, attended Bergen Catholic High School and went to college on a scholarship awarded by his father’s union, IBEW Local 164 in Paramus.

Gov. Chris Christie ran for president in 2016, but withdrew after a poor performance at the New Hampshire Republican primaries.

New Jersey magazine publisher Steve Forbes sought to run for president from the Republicans in 1996 and 2000. In the week after he finished third at the 1996 New Hampshire primaries, Forbes won the primaries in Delaware and Arizona, but these were his only victories.

Former U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley sought a Democratic nomination for president in 2000 against Vice President Al Gore. Bradley did not win the primaries that year.

In 1960, delegates to New Jersey at the Democratic National Convention were promised to Governor Robert Meiner, a favorite candidate. Mainer was interested in the presidency but did not officially participate in the election; he hoped delegates could turn to him as their candidate if the convention came to a standstill between John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Wilson won in 1912, two years after being elected governor.

Primaries were rare at the time, and congressional rules did not necessarily bind delegates. Wilson has won competitions in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Oregon, New Jersey and South Dakota. Speaker of the House of Representatives Clark has won in Illinois, Nebraska, Massachusetts, Maryland and California.

He won a Democratic nomination in the 46th vote after a deadlocked congress in Baltimore narrowed the field to Wilson and Clark. In those days, Democrats had a two-thirds rule to nominate a presidential candidate. Clark cited Wilson through the first 29 ballots.

Wilson was also the last New Jersey presidential candidate to be held in the New Jersey primaries.
