Sale Price $162.00
Signed campaign pamphlet from the 1972 Democratic primaries
Pamphlet signed: "Eugene McCarthy", front and verso 11x18, folded into sixths. Titled: "McCarthy '72/The Courage to Win the Future". Eugene Joseph McCarthy (1916-2005), a U.S. Senator from Minnesota from 1959-1971, later sought the Democratic nomination for President in 1968, running as an anti-Vietnam War candidate. His defeat of President Johnson in the March New Hampshire primary led to New York Senator Robert Kennedy's candidacy and Johnson's decision not to seek reelection on March 31st. McCarthy remained in the race as a serious contender, but damaged his chances with several gaffes, including the claim that Robert Kennedy's supporters were less intelligent than his own. At the Democratic National Convention held in Chicago, August 26-29, 1968, incumbent Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey won the presidential nomination on the first ballot with 1,761¾ votes to McCarthy's 601 and South Dakota Senator George McGovern's 67½. McCarthy ran quixotic campaigns for President through 1988, and endorsed candidate as diverse as Ronald Reagan (1980) and Ralph Nader (2000). Lightly creased. Worn at blank edges, chipped at lower right corner and right edge. Overall, fine condition.
