New York Governor DeWitt Clinton after deciding not to run for the Democratic-Republican nomination, announced his candidacy as an independent. Richard Rush was nominated for vice president.
In spite of Clinton's attempt to rally disgruntled Democratic-Republicans and Federalists, there was never any real doubt that Crawford would win, and he did.
