Additional Information

George McGovern ran in the 1972 presidential election against incumbent candidate Richard Nixon. During his campaign, he pledged to withdraw American troops from Vietnam, end the United States' involvement in the war, and bring about a time of peace to the country. With a lower military budget, McGovern promised to redistribute the money into education, health care, housing, and the creation of thousands of public service jobs. McGovern ultimately did not win the election, gaining only 17 electoral votes to Nixon's 520.
