U.S. Senate: Historical Highlights. Mark Hanna joined the Republican Party in the 1860s and within a decade was active in national politics, using his growing wealth to bolster the presidential campaigns of several Ohio Republicans, including Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 and James Garfield in 1880. With each election, Hanna’s influence grew, but his true political genius emerged in 1896 when he managed the presidential campaign of Ohio governor William McKinley.
