Good example. Any party nomination winners?

Pat Buchanan, though he didn't become the nominee, ran. He was recently
called one of America's most influential "public intellectuals" by David
Brooks, who considers Buchanan the architect behind Trump's position.

Dear Burkelers:

I'm working on a paper on Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric and I have a
question: When was the last time a presidential candidate for a major
American political party ran on a nativist platform? I assume during the
1890-1920 period of anti-European sentiment or the late-19th century
anti-Chinese policies there were some major party candidates who used
anti-immigrant rhetoric. Or did McCarthyism support anti-immigrant
sentiment, or the opposite (to help those behind the Iron Curtain)?

In my lifetime I don't recall such a nativist candidate. (Wallace in 1972
was racist, but he wasn't representing a major party.)
