Barry Goldwater

Barry Goldwater, 1963

In July of 1964, Senator Barry Goldwater won the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. His main rival was New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. Goldwater was photographed in 1963 when he was senator for Arizona.

Goldwater was viewed by many traditional Republicans as being too far on the right wing of the political spectrum to appeal to the mainstream majority necessary to win a national election and he lost to Lyndon Johnson by a landslide.
