The article discusses former U.S. Governor George Wallace and his presidential campaigns. In 1964 he used the message of segregation as his bid for the presidency with the Democratic nomination and then ran again in 1968 as the American Independent Party candidate hoping to gain enough electoral votes that the U.S. House of Representatives would decide the election. He ran again in 1972, as a Democrat, but was nearly assassinated by Arthur Bremer.
