Part 1 of a special series from Ken Rudin's Political Junkie -- 1968: 50 Years Later. After a disappointing result in the New Hampshire Primary, President Lyndon B. Johnson drops his bid for re-election. The Gene McCarthy campaign is furious as Bobby Kennedy enters the race. On the Republican side, Richard Nixon launches a political comeback.
