A year after succeeding John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat, ran for President during the 1964 U.S. election, defeating Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater and becoming the 37th President of the United States. Under his presidency, Johnson developed the Great Society, a series of governmental programming dedicated to promoting equality, education, rural and urban development, healthcare, and the fight against poverty. The Voting Rights Act and Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 are two notable legislation that Johnson passed during his term.
