"Tribute Dinner and Press Conference for The Honorable Richard Nixon, Vice-President of the United States Sponsored by Greater Los Angeles Press Club, Sunset Room, Ambassador Hotel, Tuesday Evening, February 18, 1958." In November 1962, after losing the race for Governor of California, Nixon told reporters that they "won't have Nixon to kick around anymore" because this was his "last press conference". Of course, Nixon couldn't have been more wrong. During the 1964 Presidential election he campaigned for Republican candidate Barry Goldwater, and helped to rebuild the Party after Goldwater's loss in a landslide. Then, in a remarkable political comeback, Nixon received the Republican nomination for President on the first ballot at the 1968 convention in Miami. He went on to win the Presidency over Democratic candidate Hubert Humphrey and American Independent Party candidate George Wallace. Lightly soiled on cover, else fine condition.
