The Presidency

By the time the Republican convention opened, Nixon had no opponents for the nomination. The highlight of the convention was the speech by U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona removing himself from the race where he called on the Conservatives to take back the party.

Before choosing Lodge, Nixon considered the following candidates for the vice presidential nomination, among others:

In the election, Nixon and Lodge lost to the Democratic ticket of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
