The couple has three sons, John William (Jack), James Earl III (Chip), Donnel Jeffrey (Jeff), and a daughter, Amy Lynn.

Carter served seven years as a Naval Officer before returning to Georgia, where he entered state politics in 1962.

Eight years later, he was elected Governor of Georgia.

He launched a bid for the White House in 1974 and built momentum over the next two years, beating out President Gerald R. Ford.

While president, he established two new cabinet-level departments: the Department of Energy and the Department of Education.

He said that he aimed to make government 'competent and compassionate'.

By the end of his administration, inflation and interest rates were at near record highs but Carter could still claim an increase of nearly eight million jobs and a decrease in the budget deficit.

Jimmy Carter could have been a great president if not for Republicans. He was a bit too left leaning for a lot of Americans. However, when it came to foreign policy, he was pretty bad. A reminder that Jimmy Carter put his peanut farm in a blind trust. This is what the US president is supposed to do.

He had also worked on the energy shortage by establishing a national energy policy and by decontrolling domestic petroleum prices to stimulate production.

And he sought to improve the environment, expanding the national park system to include protection of 103 million acres of Alaskan lands.

Jimmy Carter turned 95 on Tuesday — but the former president isn’t letting his age get in the way of his still active life. Carter last year surpassed George H Following President Carter ’s 90 th birthday in 2014, he told PEOPLE, “I stayed busy every year and I intend to stay busy as long as I’m physically

According to VOA, his decision in 1980 to authorize a military rescue of American hostages in Iran contributed to his reelection loss that year.

Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 after he created the Carter Center to promote human rights worldwide.

He has also spent time post-presidency building Habitat for Humanity homes, he nation's most prominent housing charity, and writing more than two dozen books.

In 2015, Carter was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma that was detected in his liver and spread to his brain.

About six months after the diagnosis, Carter announced he no longer needed cancer treatment due in part to a groundbreaking medication that trains the immune system to fight cancer tumors.

He was hospitalized two years later for dehydration while building homes with Habitat for Humanity in Canada.

He was back at the work site the next day after he was discharged.

Carter has also traveled the world for elections and worked with the Carter Center to eradicate diseases.

The center began to work toward the eradication of Guinea worm disease in 1986, when 3.5 million people had it. Last year, only 54 did, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

How to Wish Jimmy Carter Happy Birthday by Sending Message to Former President

  How to Wish Jimmy Carter Happy Birthday by Sending Message to Former President Jimmy Carter's supporters can send him a birthday message, with a photo or video, via the Carter Center.The Carter Center, a nonprofit organization founded by Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, is celebrating the oldest living former president's birthday with a birthday board, inviting members of the public to share their own messages and photos.

In Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Guatemala, the center established a river blindness eradication program which helped eliminate the disease.

Despite receding from public view due to health issues, Carter remains a quiet force in politics at home and, through his post-presidential Center, in public health and human rights advocacy around the world.

Carter on Tuesday endorsed his fellow Democrat, the Rev. Raphael Warnock, in one of two competitive Georgia U.S. Senate races this fall.

Carter's announcement aligned him with another former president, Barack Obama, and other party power brokers in backing Warnock over Democrat Matt Lieberman, whose father was the party's 2000 nominee for vice president.

Though Carter remained neutral in Democrats' 2020 presidential primary he fielded calls and visits from multiple candidates.

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, now 93, recorded audio addresses for Democrats' virtual national convention urging the election of nominee Joe Biden, who was a young senator from Delaware when Jimmy Carter won the presidency in 1976.

'Joe Biden was my first and most effective supporter in the Senate,' Carter told the convention. 'For decades, he´s been my loyal and dedicated friend.'

  How to watch Dodgers vs. Brewers: MLB playoffs live stream, schedule, TV channel, start time for Game 2 The Dodgers and Brewers face off in Game 2 of the wild-card series and Los Angeles has a chance to complete the sweep.The top-seeded Dodgers won 4-2 on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, drawing two bases-loaded walks in the first inning to take a leader they would never relinquish. Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler struck out eight in four innings and the bullpen combined for five shutout innings to finish things off.

Carter also gained new attention recently upon death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Carter is the only president since 1850 not to make a single Supreme Court nomination, but he reshaped the lower courts with a record number of nominations of women and non-white jurists, Ginsburg being the most notable.

In 1980, Carter tapped Ginsburg, then the nation's most accomplished civil rights attorney, for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, considered the nation´s second highest court.

She was the second woman Carter nominated for the D.C. Circuit, setting her up for a promotion to Supreme Court 13 years later.

'He looked around at the federal judiciary and he said, `You all look like me, but that's not how the great United States looks,' Ginsburg said to a Fordham University Law School forum in 2016.

Perhaps most notable among Carter's 2020 election maneuvering is the Carter Center for the first time designating the United States as a 'backsliding' democracy.

The Center announced after the Democratic convention that it would devote resources to ensuring free and fair U.S. elections this fall.

The Carters founded the Center in 1982, two years after he lost his re-election bid to Republican Ronald Reagan.

Four things we learned from Thursday's MLB playoff games

  Four things we learned from Thursday's MLB playoff games Thursday saw four Wild Card playoff games, with one postponed. Here's what we learned.Three teams experienced the sweet taste of victory by closing out their respective wild-card series, while one avoided a bitter end to the season by forcing a do-or-die Game 3 on Friday.

The Center has monitored more than 110 elections in 39 countries since 1989, but it was a striking development for the institution to turn its focus to Carter´s home country, the world´s leading democratic superpower since World War II.

The development comes as President Donald Trump repeatedly casts doubt on the integrity of the U.S. voting system, regularly firing off a cascade of mistruths about the voting process and asserting that the system is 'rigged' against him.

As recently as a Tuesday night debate against Biden, Trump refused to say he'd accept the results and said he'd urged his supporters 'to go into the polls and watch very carefully, because that´s what has to happen'.

Explaining the decision to monitor a U.S. election, a Carter Center statement said 'backsliding' democracies are 'often characterized by polarization, a lack of public trust, ethnic or racial divisions and injustice, and fears that election results won´t be seen as credible or could trigger violence'.

Carter has not recently addressed Trump's statements directly and, according to a spokeswoman, is not granting interviews ahead of the election.

But Carter said last September during his last annual town hall at the Carter Center that it would 'be a disaster to have four more years of Trump'.

Siding with Biden over Trump isn't surprising for a Democratic former president, but it does involve Carter ignoring one of his own recent observations about the presidency.

Weeks before his 95th birthday last year, Carter alluded to the advanced ages of several candidates at the time.

Trump, 74, would be the oldest president ever inaugurated for a second term. Biden, 77, would the oldest sitting president in history, reaching 82 near the end of a prospective first term.

'I hope there's an age limit,' Carter said jovially at his town hall when asked whether he'd run again.

Then he turned more serious: 'If I were just 80 years old, if I was 15 years younger, I don't believe I could undertake the duties I experienced when I was president.'

Only a handful of former presidents have lived past 90 years, including former President Ronald Reagan, Carter's successor, who lived to be 93.

America's founding president, George Washington, was the youngest former president to die - at 57 years and 67 days - in April 1789, nearly three years after he left office.
