Book Description Random House, New York, 1965. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Collectible; Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition. Light foxing to reverse of jacket spine & flap edges. 202 pp. 8vo. An account of Robert Kennedy's campaign for the NY senate seat, to which he was appointed in 1965, three years before his assassination. Robert Francis 'Bobby' Kennedy (November 20, 1925 - June 6, 1968), also called RFK, was the United States Attorney General from 1961 to 1964 and a US Senator from New York from 1965 until his assassination in 1968. He was one of U.S. President John F. Kennedy's younger brothers, and also one of his most trusted advisers and worked closely with the president during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He also made a significant contribution to the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Nine months after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Robert Kennedy left the Cabinet to run for a seat in the United States Senate, representing New York. President Johnson and Robert Kennedy were often at severe odds with each other, both politically and personally, yet Johnson gave considerable support to Robert Kennedy's campaign, as he was later to recall in his memoir of the White House years. His opponent in the 1964 race was Republican incumbent Kenneth Keating, who attempted to portray Kennedy as an arrogant carpetbagger. Kennedy emerged victorious in the November election, helped in part by Johnson's huge victory margin in New York.Keywords: HISTORY GOVERNMENT POLITICS POLITICAL CAMPAIGN RUNNING FOR SENATE CONGRESS SENATOR CONGRESSIONAL RACE ROBERT KENNEDY BOBBY POLITICIAN.
