Tyler never ran for President. He was the running mate of William Henry Harrison and so was elected vice-president when Harrison was elected President.

William Henry Harrison, the 9th President of the United States, was John Tyler's only running mate; they ran for President & Vice-President, respectively, on the winning Whig ticket in the 1840 election. Harrison, who supposedly caught cold from the intense chill of his Inauguration Day's outdoor ceremony, died after only a month in office, elevating John Tyler to the presidency. Tyler wished to stand for re-election in 1844, but had alienated both the major political parties of the time (the Whigs & the Democrats) and his attempts to field a third-party candidacy came to naught.
