1960 Republican National Convention


1960 Republican National Convention

The 1960 National Convention of the Republican Party of the United States was held in Chicago, Illinois, from July 25 to July 28, 1960, at the International Amphitheatre.

The convention nominated Vice President Richard M. Nixon of California for President and former Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. of Massachusetts for Vice President.

By the time the Republican convention opened, Nixon had no opponents for the nomination. The highlight of the convention was the speech by U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona removing himself from the race where he called on the Conservatives to take back the party.

It was at this convention that Nixon promised to campaign in every state during his campaign.Fact|date=July 2008
