Jimmy Carter’s victory in the 1976 presidential election is one of the most improbable in history. An underdog candidate with little name recognition, Carter beat out incumbent Gerald Ford by winning the Iowa caucus and then the New Hampshire primary. Carter then went on to win the general election against Republican nominee Ronald Reagan. In How Jimmy Won, author Kent Stroud tells the story of the Carter campaign, from the grassroots up. Stroud captures the excitement and energy of the Carter team as they travel the country, and he provides a fascinating look at the dynamics of presidential politics in the 1970s. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in American history, political campaigning, or the 1976 presidential election.; 8vo; FSA.
