The last place is Henry Claw, third place is William Crawford, and we have no majority.Andrew Jackson has the most votes but not the majority.We must have the house vote.
I am sad to inform you that as Clay was in last he was eliminated from the race, and William Crawford has had a stroke leaving him not availible to run.
I will do my best to get you elected, I look forward to working with you.
If you get the house to vote for me to become president I will elect you as the secretary of state.
Andrew Jackson, J.Q. Adams, William Crawford, and Henry clay ran for president. Henry claw came in last and was eliminated from the race. William Crawford came in third followed by Adams in second and Andrew Jackson in first. With no majority there will be a revote between Andrew,Adams,And William. The house will vote on a winner.
William Crawford had a stroke leaving him unable to continue running for election leavin just J.Q Adams and Andrew Jackson. Andrew was a war hero and J.Q Adams was secretary of state. As a war hero Jackson has experience as a leader, although Adams has had experience with the government.
Henry was the speaker of the house so he was able to convince the members. the Adams went and talked to Henry Claw in private and it was believed that they made a deal such as the one above. Adams did end up getting elected and did elect Henry as the Secretary of state.In the first election Andrew Jackson had many more popular and electoral votes than Adams.
