Jacqueline Kennedy (JBK Presidency)

Jacqueline Kennedy was elected the 35th President of the United States.

The JBK Presidency timeline was affected by the electing of Jacqueline Kennedy to the Presidency of the United States in November 1964. The election was controversial because it was the time a woman took the office and Kennedy reported sexism during the early months of her administration. Kennedy was sympathetic toward the rights of minorities and earned strong support from them and women all over the country, easily securing her reelection.

President Lyndon B. Johnson announced in June 1964 that he would not seek reelection, prompting Kennedy to run. She had previously been caring for ailing husband John F. Kennedy.

The election would be historic, as every presidential election after this would have at least one woman running for the office. The most notable of which would be Aaliyah Haughton, who Kennedy personally mentored and prepared for her eventual candidacy, leading to her victory in 2001. Prior to President Haughton's election, Laura Bush was elected to the presidency.

Haughton's victory was so renowned due to her having been involved in several campaigns throughout her life, earning her the most publicity and political ties of any candidate in the 2001 election.
