President Gerald Ford spoke at a campaign rally in Tennessee during the 1976 presidential campaign. President Ford went on to win the Tennessee Republican primary by less than one percent of the vote over former California Governor Ronald Reagan. The race remained tight through the end of the primaries and wasn’t decided until the Republican convention in July, when President Ford secured the nomination by a slim margin on the first roll call. He went on to lose the general election and the presidency to Democrat Jimmy Carter. This event is courtesy of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum. close
