John Bayard Anderson R.I.P.

John Bayard Anderson R.I.P.John Bayard Anderson, the Republican who ran as a third-party candidate in 1980 against Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, died Dec. 3. He was 95.

Anderson was a congressman who represented the 16th District of Illinois from 1961 to 1981. He received 7 percent of the vote during his presidential run including mine which  was the first time I cast a presidential vote.

In hindsight I’m glad he lost, but he was a decent and honorable man.

R.I.P. Congressman.
