Bentsen unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1976 and served as Michael Dukakis' running mate in the 1988 presidential campaign. As a Senator, he voted for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Equal Rights Amendment and supported health insurance, federal funding for medical education, scientific research, preventive health care, bilingual education (he was fluent in Spanish), and public works jobs.
