The emerging Republican Party favored a moderate, geographically balanced ticket for the 1860 presidential election. Party leaders nominated Abraham Lincoln of Illinois and Hannibal Hamlin of Maine for president and vice president. The two men had never met, but both were strong orators who opposed extending slavery into western territories. Lincoln-Hamlin would carry the election, despite receiving almost no Southern support.
