Chapter 4 offers a rhetorical history of Turner's political career leading up to the 1900 campaign. Second, the chapter offers a rhetorical analysis of speeches and writings from Turner as he campaigned for the Democratic nominee, William Jennings Bryan. Though Bryan lost to William McKinley in a landslide, Turner argued that his support for Bryan was in protest of the Republican Party abandoning the principles of liberty and justice for all.
