IMO A
Lack and proves agree with candidates and That(singular)
Though I don't understand
How is That used in this sense.
Please explain.

You're looking at this correctly. Lack agrees with candidates, and proves agrees with that. The that at the beginning is used to form the subject of the sentence (the entire that the candidates lack).

Error Analysis :
Here, its a 3:2 split. For Lack vs Lacks, "lack (PLURAL FORM)" is obviously correct as it is a VERB FORM for the current presidential candidates. Also, if we read closely, we can see that "proves" is the correct verb form for the entire phrase -- "That the current presidential candidates lack the wide support enjoyed by some of the earlier nominees" and thus, is correct. So the sentence is correct as it is. Remaining choices have one of these 2 errors.

(A) lack the wide support enjoyed by some of the earlier nominees proves
CORRECT.

(B) lacks the wide support enjoyed by some of the earlier nominees prove

(C) lack the wide support that some of the earlier nominees enjoyed prove

(D) lacks the wide support enjoyed by some of the earlier nominees proves

(E) lack the wide support enjoyed by some of the earlier nominees prove
