Johnson’s Reelection ad 1964

A little less than a year after Kennedy’s assassination, LBJ faced an election year. Here he tries to portray himself as the person who fulfilled the martyred Kennedy’s vision, and make a claim for election on his own as a steward of a nation still in mourning and in crisis.

 

This is only a part of the original ad, but you get the idea.
