Ask the Times

Published May 28, 2007


Has there been an assassination or attempted assassination of a U.S. presidential candidate?

While campaigning on Oct. 14, 1912, Theodore Roosevelt was shot in Milwaukee. He still delivered a 90-minute speech; the bullet was never removed. President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt escaped an assassination attempt unhurt Feb. 15, 1933, in Miami. On June 4, 1968, candidate Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed. Candidate George C. Wallace was shot and paralyzed on May 15, 1972.
