Ben Bubar

Benjamin Calvin Bubar, Jr. (June 17, 1917 – May 15, 1995 in Blaine, Maine), better known as Ben Bubar, was an ordained minister who actively supported the temperance movement. He was a lifelong politician and in 1938, turning 21 on election day, was, at the time, the youngest person ever to win election to the Maine House of Representatives.

Bubar was the Prohibition Party candidate for the presidency of the United States in 1976 and 1980. The party has run candidates in every presidential election since 1872. Bubar was the last Prohibition Party candidate to have had political experience before running for the presidency.

His sister Rachel Bubar Kelly was the party's vice presidential candidate in 1996 as the running mate of Earl F. Dodge who had formerly been Bubar's running mate.
