Additional Information: 

John B. Anderson, a former Congressman for twenty years, ran in the presidential election in 1980 against Democrat Jimmy Carter and Republican Ronald Reagan, who won the election. Anderson ran as a non-party candidate, which provided numerous obstacles for him. He received a decent amount of support from independents as well as some liberals. Overall, Anderson's campaign proved to be one of the best runs for a third party candidate since George Wallace ran in 1968. Anderson is also known for being a political reform leader and served 12 years as the chair of the board of FairVote.
