Kennedy v. Nixon

Edmund F. Kallina

University Press of Florida

As the Republican Party entered the presidential election year in 1960, it did so with a popular incumbent president, albeit one who had been constitutionally prohibited from running in 1960, and two formidable presidential candidates, Vice President Richard M. Nixon and New York governor Nelson A. Rockefeller. The power vacuum in conservative leadership was a benefit to Vice President Richard Nixon, who occupied a position on the center right. He established himself as a strong opponent of international communism and a firm ally of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.
