Social Democratic Party of America

The Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party, SDP ) was established in June 1898 due to disputes in following the " First National Assembly of Social Democracy in America " ( The Social Democracy in America, SDA). The "Social Democracy in America " had its members, in turn, recruited from the environment of the Pullman strike and was considered the social, less as a political movement.

The Social Democratic Party turned to the presidential election of 1900 with Eugene V. Debs its own candidate and reaches 90,000 votes, almost twice as many votes as the established Socialist Labor Party of America.

1901, the SDP was combined with various independent socialist parties to form the Socialist Party of America.
