  • Upon retiring as Governor, Askew joined the Miami law firm of greenberg, Traurig, Askew, Hoffman, Lipoff, Rosen and Quentel.

  • Biography Note

  • With the end of the Carter Administration, Askew returned to the Miami law firm until in March 1981, he commenced "testing the waters" as a prelude to seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. That campaign ended as he finished last in the New Hampshire primary in February 1984. Harvard professors named Askew one of the greatest governors of the 20th century, a list that included Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. He announced his candidacy for the United States Senate on December 21, 1987, but withdrew on May 7, 1988, citing rigors of fundraising.
