James Allen "Jim" Rhodes was an American Republican politician from Ohio, and as of 2006 one of only six US state governors to serve 4 four-year terms in office. Rhodes is tied for the fourth longest gubernatorial tenure in post-Constitutional U.S. history at 5,840 days. As governor in 1970, he sent National Guard troops onto the Kent State University campus, resulting in the shooting of students on May 4. Four students were killed and nine others were wounded, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
