A recycled campaign slogan seen during the Kennedy and LBJ presidential campaigns, "Get America Moving Again" was one of the phrases used by the "Peanut Brigade"—a group of volunteers, friends, and other Carter supporters from Georgia—in support of his 1976 campaign for president.

In the wake of the Watergate scandal and Nixon's resignation, Jimmy Carter's Washington 'outsider' image caught the eye of disillusioned voters who were fed up with the politics 'as usual' mentality corroding Capital Hill. Nixon's successor and Republican incumbent Gerald Ford fared poorly in the primaries, but eventually proved to be a worthy competitor. In the end, Carter emerged victorious and became the 39th president of the United States.
