Why (even though he had been elected president twice before) was it difficult for Roosevelt to gain the Republican Party's nomination in 1912?

So, what did Roosevelt do? What was his (and his supporters') plan?

I only have the answer for the first part and need help with the second part. heres my answer for the first part though

-He ran on a platform of "reform"...in other words, he wanted to change the Establishment (not just in his own Party but in all of Washington)...This cost him allies in both parties.
