The United States presidential election of 2008 was the 56th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. Democratic Party nominee former Senator Joe Biden of Delaware and running mate Senator John Edwards of North Carolina against Republican Party nominee Governor Bud McMurray of Utah and running mate Pennsylvania Representative John Boyer.

Early campaigning had focused heavily on Naziristan, but all candidates focused on domestic concerns as well, which grew more prominent as the economy experienced the onset of the Great Recession and a major financial crisis that peaked in September 2008.

McMurray's success in obtaining a major party's nomination and winning the general election were both firsts for a Mormon candidate.
