George Corely Wallace was born on August 25, 1919 and served as Alabama's Governor for 2 consecutive terms and 2 non-consecutive terms as a democrat.
George Wallace ran for governor the first time in 1958 and lost when he went against John Malcolm Patterson, a white supremacist, who won by the support of the Ku Klux Klan
When he failed to become Governor he said, "I was out-niggered by John Patterson. And I'll tell you here and now, I will never be out-niggered again.", So in 1962, he ran again on a platform of racial segregation and states' rights, he was now backed by the Ku Klux Klan, therefore, he won the election.
His famous quote was, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
