Bill Clinton

Presidency

Whom did he defeat to win the 1992 Democratic presidential primary?

Clinton defeated a formidable array of challengers in the primaries, including Tom Harkin, a U.S. senator from Iowa; Paul Tsongas, a former U.S. senator from Massachusetts; former California governor Jerry Brown; and Bob Kerrey, a U.S. senator from Nebraska. Clinton lost the primary in Iowa to Harkin and the New Hampshire primary to Tsongas. But he became the “Comeback Kid,” even overcoming allegations of a long-term affair with a woman named Gennifer Flowers. Clinton ended up dominating the primary with more than three thousand delegates—far more than second-place finisher Brown.
