Robert M. La Follette was an American politician who started off as a Republican but later became a Progressive Party member. Leader of the Progressive movement, he served as the Governor of Wisconsin from 1901 to 1906 and later as a US Senator from 1906 until 1925. Follette also ran for the 1924 Presidential elections as the Progressive Party candidate but lost the seat to Calvin Coolidge. All through his political career, Follette was noted for his reformative thinking. A stark opponent of corporate power rule, Follette’s career experienced a turning point on being bribed by a United States Senator. This marked the beginning of his rage against powerful influences and his passion as a reformer. Through his organizational skills and oratory talent, Follette championed a number of causes including woman suffrage, racial equality, child labour, railroad rate reform, direct legislation, open government, minimum wage, non-partisan elections, direct elections and so on. His natural charm and adamant political approach against corporate powers earned him the tag as the best proponent of progressivism. Also, he earned the nickname ‘Fighting Bob’ for his lifelong fight for political reforms and support for progressive reforms. Years after his death, he was ranked amongst the greatest senators of United States history due to his accomplishments in office and impact on American history.
