Boston's Presidential Bids -- PICTURES

November 13, 2012

Mitt Romney isn't the first failed presidential candidate from Boston. Since John F. Kennedy's successful run in 1960, plenty of other candidates have come from Massachusetts, with only very occassional success. We collect the candidates below.
