TUESDAY TRIVIA: Who Has Run for President the Most Times?

There is no limit on the amount of times a candidate that meets constitutional requirements for the presidency and has never been elected can run for president.

Who has run for president of the U.S. the most times?

Some sources say Norman Mattoon Thomas, a Presbyterian minister, ran for president the most times—he was a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

However, Harold E. Stassen, a former governor of Minnesota, educator and special presidential assistant, threw his hat in the ring nine times for the Republican party.
