This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Election of 1972 & 1976 - Nixon-Carter. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
In 1972, the Republicans nominated President Richard M. Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew. The Democrats, still split over the war in Vietnam, chose a presidential candidate of liberal persuasion, Senator George McGovern of SD. Senator Thomas F. Eagleton of MO was the vice-presidential choice, but after it was revealed that he had once received electric shock and other psychiatric treatments, he resigned from the ticket. McGovern named Sargent Shriver, director of the Peace Corps, as his replacement.
In 1976, the Democratic party nominated former governor Jimmy Carter of GA for president and Senator Walter Mondale of MN for vice president. The Republicans chose President Gerald Ford and Senator Robert Dole of KS. Richard M. Nixon had appointed Ford, a congressman from MI, as vice president to replace Spiro Agnew, who had resigned amid charges of corruption. Ford became president when Nixon resigned after the House Judiciary Committee voted 3 articles of impeachment because of his involvement in an attempted cover-up of the politically inspired Watergate break-in.
