In this episode of Slate's bite-sized podcast about presidential campaign history, chief political correspondent John Dickerson offers up Part Two in his look at Ronald Reagan's rise to power in the conservative movement. 

As detailed in our first installment, Reagan boldly challenged President Gerald Ford for the 1976 Republican nomination. 

Today, Dickerson describes the political maneuvering that took place at the Republican National Convention that summer. Ford secured the party's nomination, but Reagan ultimately won the hearts of Republicans for decades to come.
