As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the early 20th century.

Leading his party and country into the Progressive Era, he championed his "Square Deal" domestic policies, promising the average citizen fairness, breaking of trusts, regulation of railroads, and pure food and drugs.
