In 1832, Andrew Jackson sought re-election for a second term. His opponent was Henry Clay from the newly formed National Republican party.
A third party called the “Anti-Masonic Party” opposed the elite and corrupt. William Wirt spearheaded this party and classified both Clay and Jackson as being part of “freemasonry”.
