John Kerry of Massachusetts locked up the 2004 Democratic nomination in early March and faced Republican President George W. Bush.The November showdown between Biden and Trump is the first rematch in the race for the White House since 1956, when Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated former Democratic Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois as they faced off a second time.Get the latest updates from the 2024 campaign trail, exclusive interviews and more at our Fox News Digital election hub
