George Wallace has chosen Marvin Griffin as his running mate.

The Christian Broadcasting Network endorses Nixon, believing him to be a man of integrity (how ironic!).

Some hippies protest Reagan's foreign policy.

A scandal hit McCarthy (the Courts)

Rockefeller did well in a couple of interviews where he talked about Leadership and Military Intervention

Humphrey attacked McCarthy's foreign policy in an ad which pleased the establishment but infuriated the anti-war protesters and the hippies.

McCarthy's vision for Vietnam was received well by some, not so by others.

Ted Kennedy campaigns for his brother in Massachusetts.

Cesar Chavez also attacks McCarthy's foreign policy while campaigning for Robert Kennedy
