In 1932 the Socialist party ran James Maurer (standing in the middle) as its vice presidential candidate in the presidential election. Standing fourth from the right is Darlington Hoopes, who would replace Maurer as Norman Thomas's running mate during the presidential election of 1944. Hoopes would follow Thomas as the Socialists' presidential candidate in 1952.
