In 1996, Republican Bob Dole ran for President of the United Sates with Jack Kemp as his running mate. Dole originally served as a U.S. Senator from Kansas for nearly 30 years and was also picked as a Vice Presidential running mate in 1976 twenty years before running for president. He was the last World War II veteran to run for president as well as the oldest first-time nominee for President at 73 years old. Dole's main goals were to solve the budget crisis and reduce income tax.
Dole lost to incumbent President Bill Clinton and his Vice President, Al Gore.
