Carter Finished Campaign

Jimmy Carter finished his 461,000-mile presidential campaign with a rally in Flint, Michigan - President Gerald Ford’s home state. Polls showed the race to be a dead heat. After the Flint rally, Carter flew home to Plains, Georgia aboard his campaign airplane, nicknamed “Peanut One.”
