Nixon Legacy Forum: The Greatest Comeback: Richard Nixon and the 1968 Election

Friday, September 21, 2018
5:00 pm EST
Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

President Dwight Eisenhower’s Vice President, Richard Nixon, lost the 1960 Presidential election to John Kennedy and then the California Governorship to Edmund “Pat” Brown in 1962. At a dramatic post-election press conference, he announced his complete withdrawal from politics, but he couldn’t stay away.

He campaigned tirelessly for the 1964 GOP nominee, Barry Goldwater, as well as for dozens of Republican candidates in the 1966 mid-term elections. His subsequent winning of the Republican nomination in 1968 is the stuff of legends.

This Nixon Legacy Forum will re-tell the story of Richard Nixon’s comeback and his historic 1968 election victory. Panelists will include Pat Buchanan, Dwight Chapin, Annelise Anderson, and Ken Khachigian. Moderated by Geoff Shepard.

Presented in partnership with the National Archives and Records Administration.
