It took Teddy Roosevelt 526 tries to win his first presidents race. On Friday night at Nationals Park, the Nationals’ newest racing president made his debut and stole victory number one from his fellow Republicans.
Calvin Coolidge got a late start to his inaugural presidents race, but after making a dramatic entrance, our 30th president charged hard from the back of pack.
“Silent Cal” shoved Abraham Lincoln aside, then caught up to Teddy Roosevelt just as the Rough Rider was about to cross the finish line.
That’s when Coolidge violently pushed Roosevelt to the ground.
The presidents race field definitely just got a little more crowded.
