President Thornton Very Close to Reelection. Kennedy Camp Must Face Possibly Not Winning a Single State.
Kennedy: 0        Thornton: 240        Humphrey: 21        269 needed to win

Welcome back as you can see, President Dan Thornton is very close though not there yet, very close to reelection. Senator Kennedy is yet to carry a single state across the country, and more disappointment, Hubert Humphrey wins in Massachussetts.Its not a fifty state sweep, we can project that at this 8 o'clock hour on the east coast as fifteen more states close their polls. Hubert Humphrey, the independent candidate has carried two states at this hour. However, major news headline, the democrats have to face the possibility, a possibility thats alive and working, the democrats might not carry a single state tonight. More to come we will have to wait and see, but that would be historic.

Any predictions or comments here? How does this election come out, does Kennedy go without carrying a single state?

Good evening again, two more states have closed their polls at this hour and we can make declarations.

First in North Carolina, again the Humphrey campaign basically sunk the chances for the Kennedy campaign here as it did apparantly across the country. Dan Thornton does go on to win in North Carolina.


Dan Thornton
North Carolina 14 electoral votes

Arkansas. Another southern state going for the President, the republican wins in Arkansas tonight.

Dan Thornton
Arkansas 8 electoral votes

Lets turn again to our electoral map.
Kennedy: 0        Thornton: 262        Humphrey: 21        269 needed to win

Just before the 9 o'clock hour, how fitting is it. Connecticut, the state of Connecticut goes for President Thornton and that puts him over the electoral top. We can now declare Dan Thornton, former Colorado governor and now President of the United States, has been returned to the presidency for another four years. Thornton wins again tonight.

Dan Thornton
Connecticut 8 electoral votes

Dan Thornton
President of the United States
Kennedy: 0        Thornton: 270        Humphrey: 21        269 needed to win

This is a big moment and we will be back with more election coverage as polls close at the 9 o'clock hour, just to add to the President's victory column as expected.

Welcome back, we can declare as you have already heard. Dan Thornton has been reelected tonight, the extent of that victory is yet to be decided. Questions still at this hour. Can Hubert Humphrey give a roughly strong showing tonight in the electoral count he already has been declared the winner in two states? John Kennedy, not good news at this hour. Does he even carry a single state, that is in doubt at this hour. A very jubliant mood in Denver at this hour, President Thornton declared the winner tonight in the election. Thornton by our projections at least has 359 electoral votes at this our. Lets look over the polls that have just closed now.

In Arizona, John Kennedy apparantly doing very poorly here tonight. President Thornton wins easily in Arizona.

Dan Thornton
Arizona 4 electoral votes

Same story in Colorado. Despite a strong showing as we see now for Hubert Humphrey, John Kennedy comes in a distant third here tonight. Thornton takes Colorado.

Dan Thornton
Colorado 6 electoral votes

Kansas. Kansas always a solid republican state does go again for the President.

Dan Thornton
Kansas 8 electoral votes

Another state, Louisiana. The south going very well for the President and it is here. Louisiana goes for Thornton.

Dan Thronton
Louisiana 10 electoral votes

In Michigan, there was some question here to call it for the President or not. Hubert Humphrey appears to find some strength here, but we decided that their was confidence enough that when all of the votes are in and counted President Thornton will win that state by at least a considerable margin.

Dan Thornton
Michigan 20 electoral votes

Minnesota, this state is as well all know the home state of Hubert Humphrey. Can he make a statement by carrying his home state? Does Thornton carry it? Can Kennedy make it his one state? Undecided at this hour in Minnesota.

John Kennedy vs. Dan Thornton vs. Hubert Humphrey
Minnesota 11 electoral votes

Nebraska, another strong republican state in the middle of the country. Dan Thornton takes that farm state easily of Nebraska.

Dan Thornton
Nebraska 6 electoral votes

New Mexico. A state where once Humphrey got into the race and on the ballot in all fifty states, didn't really see any competition. Thornton, Dan Thornton the now reelected President takes New Mexico.

Dan Thornton
New Mexico 4 electoral votes

New York. That state is one that people are probably watching now, that state is undecided at this hour. Thornton does lead there right now.

John Kennedy vs. Dan Thornton vs. Hubert Humphrey
New York 45 electoral votes

Would obviously be another big electoral vote boost for the President there if it were to go for him officially, undecided there despite a projected lead of the republican.

Rhode Island, that state is said to be competetive between Thornton and Humphrey. Undecided there at this hour.


John Kennedy vs. Dan Thornton vs Hubert Humphrey
Rhode Island 4 electoral votes

We can declare South Dakota to go for President Thornton.

Dan Thornton
South Dakota 4 electoral votes

Wisconsin. That state could go for the Humphrey camp. We say that as it is a state where he is competetive, but it is undecded at this hour.

John Kennedy vs. Dan Thronton. Hubert Humphrey
Wisconsin 12 electoral votes

Now we can declare Wyoming for the President.

Dan Thornton
Wyoming 3 electoral votes
Kennedy: 0        Thornton: 359        Humphrey: 21        269 needed to win

Our news stations have been waiting on us through that list of projections there to go to a break and we can now. Back in a moment.

Not sure how much ease to this night this projection will bring, but senator Kennedy will win at least one state tonight as he carries Rhode Island. Little rhody goes against the tide and gives its electoral votes to the democrat.

President Thornton enjoyed a sweeping reelection victory and a republican senate following the 1960 elections. Republicans would cry however when a recession hit in 1962, the democrats needed twelve seats to retake the senate that year and in a dramatic turn of events, they picked up exactly twelve seats. Democrats were back in control of congress. The recession would end in late spring and early summer of 1963.

As the 1964 elections approached, the outcome appeared to be unpredictable. President Dan Thornton was term limited and therefore could not run for reelection. This fact made for a host of candidates running for both the republican and democratic nominations for President. For the republicans, vice president Caleb Boggs would go on to win the republican nomination for President. Boggs would take Indiana secertary of state Edgar Whitcomb as his running mate. The Boggs/Whitcomb ticket was nominated at the republican national convention that summer.

For the democrats, the party saw a return of former President Okey Patterson to the fold. Patterson surprised many pundits, but pleased his supporters as he announced his candidacy for the nomination. The primary season was challenging, but Patterson survived and was renominated for the third time by the democratic party for President. Patterson took California governor Pat Brown as his running mate.

And for the independent party. Former Mississippi governor Ross Barnett would run and secure the nomination for President from the independent party. Barnett would take South Carolina governor Bob McNair as his running mate.

The campaign was a heated one that began with a big Boggs lead. As election day approached, Patterson in a dramatic turn would close the gap in the polls. Does former President Patterson return to power, winning the presidency and becoming the first President since Grover Cleveland to serve two non consecutive terms? Or does Vice President Boggs do what many think he will, and win the presidency in his own right? These questions and more to be answered as election night 1964 coverage begins next.

Election 1964 Eve
Good evening. No, this is not the start of our election night coverage, that starts about this time tomorrow night. No this is the evening news here to bring you what some might call an introduction and brief overview of where we stand going into election day and election night 1964. Our election panel is here tonight. On election night, we tend to get caught up in all of the excitment as polls close across the country and projections are made, winners and loosers. We get so caught up in that, that we forget to turn to our panel often on election night. We are going to hear from them in this segment discussing the election taking place tomorrow.

Election campaign 1964 has seen a popular vice president looking for a promotion, but first he needs to get past a former president looking to reclaim the job that he once held. Okey Patterson, a man who started out as a democratic operative in West Virgnia only to win two terms as governor of that state. If you remember, Patterson defeated the odds in 1952 when he beat Oklahoma congressman Ross Rizley for the presidency, extending what was already a twenty year hold for the democrats on the White House. Patterson faced democratic fatigue in 1956 and lost that year to a little known Colorado governor, now outgoing President Dan Thornton. Patterson left politics and became a political commentator until this year when he decided to give the presidency another try.

Caleb Boggs is a former Delaware governor who became vice president on a ticket headed by Thornton in 1956. The ticket was returned to office in a resounding victory over senator John Kennedy and former senator Hubert Humphrey. Humphrey devestatingly split the democratic vote four years ago allowing President Thornton to win one of the most sweeping victories for an incumbent in American history. Faced with brief economic problems, the country is now on economic rebound, at least according to the vice president. Caleb Boggs proves a strong candidate in this election year.

Lets show you now, this is a final polling map for the country from a poll taken on Friday. Lets show it to you now.

Patterson: 149        Boggs: 156        Barnett: 46        270 needed to win

Lets now bring in our panel. At least from that map, the vice president seems to be maintaining his lead in the polls.

He does and I think vice president Boggs has a very good chance of being President elect in the next forty-eight hours. He has a strong hold on the west, and is holding his own in the south despite the strong showing of the independent candidate there. If Patterson starts to loose some of these undecided states in the east, he can say goodbye to another term in the White House.

Illinois and Ohio are going to be critical states for both sides here on election night. Does Patterson have a chance in either of them?

I think he does. What the democratic camp is going to be watching is the big city vote in both states. Chicago and Cook county in Illinois. Colombus and Cincinati in Ohio. Missouri might be a little bit easier to win for him or Maryland. But, when you look at the electoral vote count. Missouri and Maryland are nice consolation prizes for the former President, but he knows as do both sides that Illinois and Ohio, if Patterson wins Missouri and Maryland but Boggs wins Illinois and Ohio, its very difficult to get the former President to 270 electoral votes.

We have to go here panel, I'm sorry you will be here with us tomorrow night. But one more question, we saw an election go to the house of representatives in 1948, could it happen again this election cycle?

When you look at that electoral vote count, its a close race in that sense between Boggs and Patterson, with an edge going to the republican. There are some undecided states out there, if this race remains as close as it is according to these polls and Barnett can win some of these undecided southern states, I'd say another election in the house is a real possibility.

One final thought. No way Boggs could win in the house?

The lower chamber is much more democratic than the senate, I would say its very unlikely.

Thank you panel and thanks to our readers. Back with the start of election night coming up.

7 o'clock hour brings only scattered returns. Boggs Narrow Lead.
Good evening, here for another exciting election night coverage. The candidates today, all three of them went to the polls along with millions of Americans to vote, and now they can only wait for the verdict. Polls closed moments ago in six states and we have some information to share with you.

In Georiga. This is a state that looked competetive early in the campaign, Barnett began to pull away in the final weeks and he carries it. Georgia goes for the independent, Ross Barnett tonight.


Ross Barnett
Georgia 12 electoral votes

Like wise a projection for the vice president. Vermont, this far eastern state goes for the republican candidate tonight by our projections.

Caleb Boggs
Vermont 3 electoral votes

Kentucky, the bluegrass state. Its undecided in this appalachin state at this hour.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Kentucky 9 electoral votes

Diddo in Indiana. This is a surprise, Boggs was thought to have a pretty sizable lead there going into tonight. Undecided also in Indiana.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Indiana 13 electoral votes

South Carolina, another state where polls have closed. It is said to be a very close race between Boggs and Barnett there at this hour, Patterson lagging a little bit there, but still competetive.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
South Carolina 8 electoral votes

Virgnia, I knew there was one we were missing in that line up. Polls have closed in Virgnia and Caleb Boggs, the incumbent vice president seeking a promotion. Will he get it? With only six states reporting, we can't say yet. But, this will help, Virgnia goes for the vice president.

Caleb Boggs
Virgnia 12 electoral votes

Now to look at our electoral map for the first time tonight, Boggs leading.
Patterson: 0        Boggs: 15        Barnett: 12        270 needed to win

Must feel good for democrats getting electoral votes on the board at this hour. They had a hard time with that four years ago.

Any trend at this hour?

A handfull of states where polls have closed are undecided, there is a higher Wallace vote than expected according to exit polls. See if that has any affect and to what side.

Back in a moment.




West Virgnia (projected result):
Patterson: 50%
Boggs: 38%
Barnett: 13%

Georgia (projected result):
Patterson: 27%
Boggs: 27%

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Tennessee 11 electoral votes

All of these undecided states, call one. Texas for Patterson. Okey Patterson, this will come as a little bit of a surprise, especially with such a scattered set of returns. The lone star state drops for Patterson at this early hour.

Okey Patterson
Texas 25 electoral votes

Lets go to the electoral map.
Patterson: 73        Boggs: 23        Barnett: 29        270 needed to win

Well quite the change in emotion. Boggs goes from leading, with Patterson having nothing. Now Patterson leads both of them, the other major party candidate by fifty electoral votes.

I don't really know what to say. Maine and Massachussetts both going to the respective sides, thats pretty much expected. Alabama and Mississippi going by wide margins for Barnett, thats pretty much expected. Texas and Ohio while Indiana is whats throwing me for a loop. Intersting night at least thus far.

Back in a moment.

Back at election 1964 central, as we are calling Florida for the vice president. This was a state that the Patterson camp earlier had some hope in but as election day approached Boggs opened up a lead here. Caleb Boggs helps his chances tonight by taking the state of Florida.

Caleb Boggs
Florida 14 electoral votes
Patterson: 93        Boggs: 58        Barnett: 40        270 needed to win

Join us again in a moment. Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Rhode Island, New York, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, Louisiana. Did I get them all?

I think so.

All of those states listed close their polls in just moments. Come right back here with us for that. Stay with us, we'll come back.

Welcome back to election night 1964 coverage. Polls have closed in a collection of states and we have some projections to tell you about.

First in Arkansas. This was a state where the democrat thought he might have a chance, but it was not to be. Ross Barnett, governor of Mississippi takes the state of Arkansas tonight.


Ross Barnett
Arkansas 6 electoral votes

Another southern state but with a different story. North Carolina, Boggs faced a stiff challenge especially from the independent candidate here. We can project now that he holds on, Caleb Boggs wins in North Carolina. That will help his prospects, holding back the southern independent tide and carrying North Carolina.

Caleb Boggs
North Carolina 13 electoral votes

Back to the independents in Louisiana, Barnett easily takes the state.

Ross Barnett
Louisiana 10 electoral votes

A winner in Minnesota can be declared. Former President Patterson, the democrat takes this state, by a wide margin.

Okey Patterson
Minnesota 10 electoral votes

Boggs didn't even have an office there in Minnesota during the last month of the campaign, conceeding that state to the democrats. In Michigan, this state was thought to be going pretty well for Patterson, may still do that but its undecided at this hour.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Michigan 21 electoral votes

Thats a big prize in Michigan tonight. Wisconsin, another state that is competetive tonight. It is said that if the republican candidate were to loose here tonight, its very tough to win. Undecided at this hour in Wisconsin.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Wisconsin 12 electoral votes

Lets get away from all of that serious business. Kansas, considered one of the most republican states in the nation. Vice President Boggs wins big here.

Caleb Boggs
Kansas 7 electoral votes

Diddo as we like to say in Nebraska. Boggs wins in Nebraska.

If the east is tough, the heart land of America is where the republican can pick up and make up some ground.


Caleb Boggs
Nebraska 5 electoral votes

A winner in South Dakota. A close race, probably not. Caleb Boggs wins in this plains state.

Caleb Boggs
South Dakota 4 electoral votes

A little bit of bad news for republicans at this hour. Patterson wins New York. The state that helped spell defeat for him in 1956 might help him tonight. New York goes for the democratic candidate tonight.

Okey Patterson
New York 43 electoral votes

Same story in Rhode Island. Little rhody goes for Patterson.

Okey Patterson
Rhode Island 4 electoral votes

A winner in New Mexico. Boggs wins that state.

Caleb Boggs
New Mexico 4 electoral votes

Arizona also gives its votes to the republican.

Caleb Boggs
Arizona 5 electoral votes

Colorado. Boggs led here going into the final days, we are not prepared to declare a winner there however a this hour. Its undecided in Colorado.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Colorado 6 electoral votes

And Wyoming. Boggs, the republican wins this small western state.

A small state but if this election turns out to be really close, this could be the difference.


Caleb Boggs
Wyoming 3 electoral votes
Patterson: 150        Boggs: 99        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

Have we had any election where a state like Wyoming did decide an election?

I could think of Al Smith's victory in 1932. That was a very close election, I remember it was Florida and Illinois. Florida went to the republican, but Illinois fell to Smith in the late vote count and the democrat won that election very narrowly.

I think of 1940. Roosevelt beating another former President because a state considered to be republican went to the democrat. 1936 was no landlide either.

Franklin Roosevelt beat former President Lowden in 1940 by a narrow margin, but the Roosevelt margin expanded in 1944 when he beat Thomas Dewey by a wide margin that year.

And then he won again in 1948 but through the house of representatives. I'm told we can call Colorado. This western state was never really contested this year. For what it matters our calling it for the vice president takes the republican over 100 electoral votes.

Patterson making some big news by winning New York as the polls close, but still a handfull of states to watch.

I'm sure this election will keep getting interesting as the night goes along. Back in a moment.


Caleb Boggs
Colorado 6 electoral votes



Patterson: 150        Boggs: 105        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

A big comeback for vice president Caleb Boggs. As polls close at 10 o'clock on the east coast, we can declare four states of the five which are closing their polls at this hour. Lets look them over.

First in Utah, one of the most republican states in the country. Utah will give its electoral votes to republican vice president Caleb Boggs.


Caleb Boggs
Utah 4 electoral votes

We can also declare the state of Idaho for Boggs. Idaho will give its electoral votes to the republican candidate.

Caleb Boggs
Idaho 4 electoral votes

There is one state left undecided at this hour whose polls have just closed. This is in Montana, Patterson didn't expect to have much of a chance here, we'll have to find out what exactly is the case. Undecided at this hour in Montana.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Montana 4 electoral votes

We can declare the state of Iowa for the republican. This was expected, Boggs wins this farm state rather easily at this hour.

Caleb Boggs
Iowa 9 electoral votes

We can also call the state of Nevada for the republican. This was a state where former President Patterson thought he would have a chance tonight but apparantly its not to be. Caleb Boggs wins also in Nevada tonight.

Caleb Boggs
Nevada 3 electoral votes

Patterson: 150        Boggs: 125        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

Still pretty far behind in the electoral vote count, but a gain is a gain.

Historically, returns like this are predictable. 1916, Gallinger was far behind President Marshall early in the evening and even into the night. The late returns actually declared the republican President until Oregon flipped in the absentee voting. Both Smith elections, the republican candidates were far behind until later in the evening. I wouldn't be too concerned at this hour if I were the Boggs camp.

Back in a moment.

We can declare the state of Montana for Boggs. Caleb Boggs does what was expected of him and carries Montana.

Caleb Boggs
Montana 4 electoral votes

A few projections to make here. First in the bluegrass state, one of the first states to close their polls tonight. Boggs finally carries Kentucky.

Caleb Boggs
Kentucky 9 electoral votes

Another call to make in Missouri. The show me state, not a disaster for the republicans here but its enough for Patterson to hold his lead. Okey Patterson carries Missouri as he did in the 1950s.

Okey Patterson
Missouri 12 electoral votes

Delaware. The vice president's home state, one that the republicans expected to go to them, the democrats agreed with that. But, boy did they want to make sure they had it tonight, on a night like this. The vice president takes his home state.

Caleb Boggs
Delaware 3 electoral votes

Patterson: 162        Boggs: 141        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

This comes as we have another major declaration and it is for the former President. Okey Patterson wins in Illinois. This will be a major victory and I can hear a sigh of relief coming from Charleston tonight.

That is great news for the democratic camp. There was fear that Illinois and Ohio would both go to Boggs tonight, but they have gone back to the democrats in this election.

The Patterson camp still has reason for concern as the returns are tightening in Michigan and Pennsylvania, Boggs leads in New Jersey and the west coast which is still yet to come, the coast is expected to be Boggs country.


Okey Patterson
Illinois 26 electoral votes
Patterson: 188        Boggs: 141        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

Election night 1964 coverage continues in a moment.
