Answer
Theodore Roosevelt ran for president on a progressive platform for the Bull Moose Party in 1912. Ross Perot ran for president as a Reform Party candidate in 1996.
Key Concept
Third-party candidates in U.S. presidential elections
Explanation
Theodore Roosevelt, after serving as the 26th President of the United States, ran again for the presidency in 1912 as a candidate of the Progressive Party, also known as the Bull Moose Party. This is an example of a third-party candidacy because Roosevelt was not running as a candidate from the two major parties (Republican or Democrat) at that time. Ross Perot ran as a third-party candidate in the 1992 presidential election and again in 1996 as a candidate of the Reform Party. While the question incorrectly states the year as 1995, it is understood that it refers to the election cycle that culminated in the 1996 election. Bill Clinton and Donald J. Trump ran as candidates from the two major parties, Democrat and Republican, respectively, and are not examples of third-party candidates.
