Description
Former vice president Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew, governor of Maryland, were the 1968 Republican candidates for president and vice president. Because they were running against Hubert H. Humphrey, the incumbent vice president, many of their campaign slogans called for change. Nixon and Agnew defeated Humphrey and his running mate Edmund Muskie, senator from Maine.
