The People for Ford (PFF) was a volunteer initiative for the President Ford Committee developed to target special voter groups where similar For Ford slogans were also created for Hungarian, Ukrainian, Serbian, and others for direct efforts in gaining support from these groups. The PFF also targeted women, farmers, senior citizens and professional groups.

Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. entered into politics as a member of the House of Representatives which led him to become Minority Leader and House Speaker. Upon the resignation of U. S. President Spiro Agnew, Ford was appointed by President Nixon to assume the vice-presidency. Ford would go on to become the 38th President of the United States after the resignation of Richard Nixon. Ford is the only U.S. president who had never been elected to national office. Ford died December 26, 2006.
