Despite losing the presidency Hearst was still the strongest figure in the democratic party. He fought a bitter battle with Bryan for the Democratic nomination in 1908, ultimately triumphing but losing the election again to Roosevelt. Hearst attempted to gain the Democratic nomination again in 1912, 1920 and 1928, but was never considered a serious candidate. His influence in the Democratic party waned following his vocal opposition to American intervention in the great war, and he endorsed Republican candidates Herbert Hoover (1932 and 1936) and Thomas Dewey (1944 and 1948) before retiring from public life in 1949.
