Politics Past - The 1960 Primaries.

Politics Past - a look at the 1960 Primaries featuring interviews with the leading Candidates on the eve of the first Primary in New York, March 13, 1960 - as presented by WIP Radio.

<strong>The familiar ritual.</strong>


Since we're still in Primary season, I thought I would run this reminder of how the Presidential Horse race was run in previous years. This one, from 1960, features most all the prominent candidates ahead of the New York Primary, in March of 1960.

As part of their World In Perspective series, WIP Radio and anchor Mitchell Krauss offer a look at the candidate of 1960 - their differences and their positions.

In a half hour he covers a lot of territory.

And that's what went on in the polling place during the 1960 Presidential elections.
