U.S. Presidential Primaries and the Caucus-Convention System: A Sourcebook

By James W. Davis | Go to book overview

Ross Perot's third-party, self-financed general election campaign in 1992 may have signaled a possible trend. Perot spent approximately $60 million of his own funds, collecting 19 percent of the popular vote.
