Republican Nomination

Democratic Nomination

President Kennedy was easily renominated by the party, being virtually unopposed and being very popular in the north. However his popularity in the south was somewhat questionable and his liberal leaning policies had made him many enemies among the stalwart conservatives that still had considerable power within the party. They refused to renominate Brown for the vice presidency, and wanted a "fresh face". Kennedy personally demmanded that no conservative southerner should be on the ticket, pointing to the failures in every election from 1940 - 1960. A compromise was reached with Lyndon B. Johnson, a popular Texan senator who was moderate on most issues.
