Description
The Prohibition Party in the Hayes Administration

While the Prohibition Party gained votes in the 1876 election over 1872, its vote total was still miniscule. The party worked to organize state affiliates during the Hayes presidency, and in the midterm election of 1878 the party offered 56 candidates (17 in NY and 13 in OH, 26 in 7 other states). The party did not exist at the time in the former Confederate States and was weak in New England.

In the spring of 1880, party leaders in several northern states held state conventions to choose delegates to the national convention. State conventions were held in MA on 4/20 [NYT 4/21], NY on 4/20 [NYT 4/13], CT on 4/21 [NYT 4/22], and PA on 5/20 [NYT 5/21]. In these conventions, the party's initial constituency was clear: religious leaders and women. A local convention in Middletown NY nominated a slate of women to run for school board, and the minority Democrats endorsed them rather than running their own slate [NYT 3/9/1880].
