George C. Wallace and the Politics of Powerlessness: The Wallace Campaigns for the Presidency 1964-1976 Jody Carlson
Former Governor of Alabama George Wallace ran in the 1968 United States presidential election as the candidate of the American Independent Party. Wallace's pro-segregation policies had been rejected by the mainstream of the Democratic Party. The impact of the Wallace campaign was substantial, winning the electoral votes of several states in the Deep South. Although Wallace did not expect to win the election, his strategy was to prevent either major party candidate from winning a majority in the Electoral College and throw the election into the House of Representatives, where Wallace would have bargaining power sufficient to determine, or at least strongly influence, the selection of a winner.
