Presidential candidates

Campaining & major issues

Federalists knew they would have a tough time trying to defeat the popular Jefferson. However, they still tried. They criticized Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase for being unconstitutional and said he had an affair with one of his slaves. However, a lot of the Federalist's chances to win were destroyed when their party leader, Alexander Hamilton, was shot and killed in a duel. Because of this, the party had a lot of disorganization with no leader.
