Gary Hart – Biographical Brief

Gary Hart earned degrees at Bethany (Oklahoma) Nazarene College and Yale Divinity School with the intention of going into the ministry. Sen. John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential campaign, however, inspired him to change his goals from preaching and teaching to law and politics; four years later he graduated from Yale Law School. Hart first made a name for himself as the campaign manager for Sen. George McGovern’s run for the presidency in 1972. His organizational and fund-raising strategies enabled the liberal McGovern to capture the Democratic nomination. Two years after his candidate lost the general election to Richard Nixon, Hart was elected by Colorado voters to the U.S. Senate. By the time he won reelection in 1980, he was considerably more conservative than the long-haired Hart of the McGovern days.

In 1984 Hart ran a close race against Sen. Walter Mondale for the Democratic presidential nomination; although Hart won 26 states to Mondale’s 19, Mondale’s superior organization netted him enough delegates for victory.

After his retirement from the Senate, Hart turned his attention to teaching and to national security issues. He served as co-chair of the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century and was a visiting lecturer at such universities as Oxford, Yale, and the University of Colorado at Denver.

He also worked as senior counsel for the international law firm Coudert Brothers. He’s the author of twenty-one books, including Right from the Start: A Chronicle of the McGovern Campaign, Russia Shakes the World: The Second Russian Revolution, Restoration of the Republic: The Jeffersonian Ideal in 21st Century America , The Republic of Conscience, and Under the Eagle’s Wing: A National Security Strategy for the United States.
