Billionaire and former US presidential candidate Ross Perot dies

He was sadly diagnosed with leukemia back in February of this year (2019). His son Ross Perot Jr. eventually succeeded him as CEO. "He lived a long and honorable life".

And, more generally, Perot used television a lot for his campaign.

Perot was born in Texarkana on June 27, 1930.

A billionaire by his mid-50s after he sold a controlling interest in the data processing business he founded, Electronic Data Systems Corporation, to General Motors for $2.5 billion, Perot mounted one of the most successful third-party presidential candidacies in USA history in 1992.

Although he had never held public office, by the early 1990s, Perot, sensing an opportunity for an outsider campaign with an anti-Washington message, was openly talking about a presidential run.

In 1992 and 1996, Perot mobilized over five million voters to get him on the ballot and was the most successful third party presidential candidate in United States history. He served in the U.S. Navy before becoming a salesman for IBM. He started up another company, Perot Systems Corp., in 1988, which was sold to Dell for $3.9 billion in 2005. EDS, an information technology equipment and services company, quickly grew into a thriving business, garnering Perot a substantial income, according to Celebrity Net Worth. General Motors ultimately bought a controlling interest in EDS for $2.4 billion. They went on to have five children.

In 1992, Perot made a name for himself when he became the most successful non-major party presidential candidate in 80 years, amassing 19% of the popular vote, running against President George H.W. Bush and Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.
