Although Truman could have run for a second full term in 1952, he decided not to seek reelection. In August 1952, President Harry Truman, left, welcomed Democratic nominee for President, Governor Adlai Stevenson of Illinois, right, and Vice Presidential nominee Senator John Sparkman of Alabama, center, to the White House.  A few months later, Stevenson was defeated in a landslide by Republican candidate General Dwight Eisenhower.
