<- 1968 Tragedy

Jerry Brown's Presidential Campaigns ->


The year 1968 saw former U.S. Vice-President Richard Nixon's political fortunes revive.  Eight years after losing the 1960 presidential election, the California-born politician earned the Republican nomination for President against a wide field of challengers including California governor Ronald Reagan and New York governor Nelson Rockefeller.  Nixon managed to defeat his Democratic opponent Hubert Humphrey in November.  He also defeated third party candidate George Wallace and his running mate from California, Curtis LeMay.
