1968 Election
 

<- Nixon's 1960 California Campaign

1968 Tragedy ->


The presidential election of 1968 was held during a time of national upheaval.  The various campaigns had to deal with issues such as the Vietnam War, student activism, civil rights, and feminism.  In addition, President Lyndon Johnson's decision not to seek re-election left the field wide open for potential candidates.  U.S. Senators Robert Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy were just two of the many hopefuls.  Johnson's vice president, Hubert Humphrey, and U.S. Senator Edmund Muskie eventually won spots on the Democratic ticket at their party's chaotic national convention in Chicago.
