Description

In 1960, Richard M. Nixon attempted to appeal to South Carolina Democrats who were unhappy with their national party's choice for president, Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy. In a cartoon published in the Greensboro "Daily News," Nixon is portrayed as trying to win votes in South Carolina through association with the popular James F. Byrnes.
