Former Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter speaks at the “grand finale” of the local Democratic Party campaign on October 30, 1976. Joining him on the podium are many of Texas’ prominent Democrats, including Gov. Dolph Briscoe, Sen. Lloyd Bensen, and Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez. Another group of Carter supporters objected to the Alamo as a site for the event and held a simultaneous rally at HemisFair Plaza. Carter won the 1976 presidential race and became the 39th President of the United States.
