According to The Associated Press, Dwight D. Eisenhower versus Adlai Stevenson is one of the notable presidential rematches.

In 1956, Eisenhower defeated Stevenson, his Democratic rival, whom he had faced four years earlier.

Meanwhile, Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th president, winning the elections in 1884 and 1892.

It’s expected that the rematch between Biden and Trump will join other historic examples dating back to the country’s founding.

When was the presidential rematch?

After Eisenhower defeated Stevenson in 1952, winning all but nine states, they faced off again four years later.

There are other examples of presidential rematches, but you have to go further back in U.S. history.

Republican President William McKinley defeated Democrat William Jennings Bryan in the 1896 election and again in 1900.

In 1836, Democrat Martin Van Buren defeated William Henry Harrison of the Whig Party. Harrison ‘got revenge’ four years later.

Thomas Jefferson was in one of the presidential rematches

John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson were also involved in presidential rematches. Adams won in 1824, and Jackson won in 1828.

Then there’s John Adams, a Federalist who was the country’s second president, and Thomas Jefferson, a Democratic-Republican who was the third.

Both ran in the first election held to succeed George Washington in 1796.

Adams won first, and Jefferson was elected vice president. Four years later, Jefferson ran again and defeated Adams.

How many former presidents have returned to the White House?

Grover Cleveland is the only president in U.S. history to serve two non-consecutive terms.

He successfully achieved what Trump is now attempting — regaining the White House from the opponent who took it before, according to The Associated Press.

Cleveland, a Democratic champion of the anti-corruption movement and governor of New York, narrowly won the 1884 presidential election.

Four years later, he won the popular vote again, but the electoral college gave the victory to Benjamin Harrison. In 1892, he had his rematch.

A look at Teddy Roosevelt

Before concluding this recount of U.S. presidential rematches, it’s worth highlighting the case of Teddy Roosevelt.

Roosevelt became president when William McKinley was assassinated in 1901 and was reelected in 1904.

However, he chose not to seek another full term in 1908 and stepped aside to make way for his Republican successor, William H. Taft.

Democrat Woodrow Wilson won the 1912 election, although Roosevelt came in second with 88 electoral votes. Taft also ran and came in third.
