Wikipedia: Mark Hanna
Marcus Alonzo Hanna (September 24, 1837 – February 15, 1904), best known as Mark Hanna, was an American industrialist and Republican politician from Cleveland, Ohio. He rose to fame as the campaign manager of the successful Republican Presidential candidate, William McKinley, in the U.S. Presidential election of 1896 in a well-funded political campaign and subsequently became one of the most powerful members of the U.S. Senate.

Famed for the quote; “There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money and I can’t remember what the second one is”.

17 June 1960, Charleston (WV) Daily Mail, “Money Played a Part” by Bob Mellace, pg. 6, col. 4:
“Because everything his father got, he bought and paid for. And politics is like war. It takes three things to win. The first is money and the second is money and the third is money.”
(Joe Kane on Joe Kennedy and his son, John F. Kennedy—ed.)
