The Secret Service endeavors to protect presidential candidates from physical harm by attacks upon him from those whom would seek their harm.
However, there is one death the Secret Service cannot prevent – political suicide.
“After the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, Congress directed the Secret Service to protect the President of the United States. Protection remains a key mission of the United States Secret Service.”
