Rutherford Decker

Rutherford Losey Decker (May 17, 1904 – September 1972) was an United States politician, a longtime member and a Presidential nominee of Prohibition Party in 1960, and the President of the National Association of Evangelicals from 1946 to 1948.[1]

Decker was born in Denver, Colorado.[2] He also preached at the Temple Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri, until he retired in the 1960s.[2][3]

A lifelong resident of Missouri, he was nominated for President with party chairman Earle Harold Munn as his running-mate.

Decker and Munn finished fifth with 46,203 (0.07%) votes (and no one electoral vote). Munn succeeded Decker as a presidential nominee in 1964. They appeared on ballots in 11 states: Alabama, Delaware, Michigan, California, Massachusetts, Texas, Tennessee, New Mexico, Kansas, Indiana and Montana. Decker and Munn never received over 1% of the vote in any of these states.
