On May 10, former Wisconsin Governor Patrick J. Lucey died at the age of 96. See this New York Times obituary. He was John B. Anderson’s vice-presidential running mate in 1980, when the independent ticket got on the ballot in all 50 states and polled 6.61% of the vote.
Anderson set out on his independent candidacy on April 24, 1980, but could not find a suitable vice-presidential candidate until August 27, 1980. The vast majority of states put Lucey on the November ballot, even though Anderson’s ballot access petitions had circulated with stand-ins. The Anderson-Lucey ticket won lawsuits against Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Florida, to force state election officials to print Lucey’s name on the ballot instead of the stand-ins. Thanks to J. David Gillespie for the link.
