Former Alabama Governor George Wallace is best-known for his staunch support of racial segregation. In 1968, he chose to run for president under the banner of the newly formed American Independent Party, and this film chronicles his push to get on the California ballot. Gov. Wallace eventually succeeded in getting on the ballot in all 50 states. He came in third in the general election, receiving 13.5 percent of the vote and winning five states. Republican Richard Nixon won the presidency that year in a tight race over Democrat Hubert Humphrey. This film is courtesy of the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
