It’s November, 1980 And We’ve Elected A New President

1980 was a turbulent year in the Presidency of James Earl Carter.

Interest rates were sky high.  Energy costs were up.  Gasoline had been in short supply, or at least so it seemed.

And then there was Iran.  Americans had been held hostage there for months and everyone was familiar with the name Ayatollah Khomeini.

It certainly wasn’t going to be an easy election for the former peanut farmer and Governor of Georgia.  In addition to all that, he had challenges from inside his own party in the form of Ted Kennedy.

We didn’t have to stay up too late that election night in November, 1980.  The challenger rode in from the west and easily captured the nation’s highest office.

Ronald Wilson was elected president of the United States of America.  NBC television told the nation.
