Patrick Buchanan and Barbara Perry on the 1968 Presidential Campaign Presidential scholar Barbara Perry and political commentator and Nixon presidential campaign staffer Pat Buchanan talked about the 1968 presidential campaign. The eventual nominees were Democrat Hubert Humphrey and Republican Richard Nixon, but other candidates included President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eugene McCarthy, Robert F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, George Romney, Nelson Rockefeller, and third-party candidate George Wallace. Before the campaign ended, the sitting president was out of the race, Robert Kennedy was assassinated, violent clashes between Chicago police and protesters dominated television coverage of the Democratic National Convention, and Richard Nixon had won a decisive victory.

The program began with a clip of President Lyndon Johnson’s March 31, 1968, announcement that he would not run for reelection. close
