Here again we have another call. No map to show you, that will be coming up. Michigan is going for the democrat tonight. Okey Patterson takes the state of Michigan in his bid to win a second but non consecutive term. Back in a moment, election night 1964 coverage.

Okey Patterson
Michigan 21 electoral votes

We are making some more projections as polls close on the west coast.

First in California. This state could be key, Pat Brown running for vice president with the democrats hopes to bring California in to their column. Its undecided at this hour in the golden state.


Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
California 40 electoral votes

Washington state. Undecided in this state also tonight.

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

We can declare Hawaii for the democratic nominee. Patterson wins the honolulu state.

Okey Patterson
Hawaii 4 electoral votes

We can call North Dakota for the vice president.

Caleb Boggs
North Dakota 4 electoral votes

Another projection can be made in Oregon. Democrats thought they could carry it but its not to be. Oregon goes also for the republican vice president.

Caleb Boggs
Oregon 6 electoral votes

Neither camp is confirming this, we can call California for the republican. This is not confirmed by either camp, but Caleb Boggs wins the forty electoral votes in California, thats an upset. This is a horse race.

Caleb Boggs
California 40 electoral votes
Patterson: 213        Boggs: 191        Barnett: 56        270 needed to win

A true horse race.

Back in a moment.

Welcome back to our election night 1964 coverage, where we have some news to share with you at this hour. There were some errors in the vote count in a few states. If your angry with us, frankly we don't blame you. News at this hour, we are taking two states from former President Patterson and putting them back into the undecided column, they are major states. We are taking both Illinois and Ohio out of the democrat's column and putting them back into the undecided column. Breathing new life into what was a struggling, though not dead republican campaign. Again if your angry with us, we don't blame you, the only way to say it is that there were some gliches in the vote count and this election is too close to call.

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Illinois 26 electoral votes

Okey Patterson vs. Caleb Boggs vs. Ross Barnett
Ohio 26 electoral votes

At this hour we can also make two more projections. First in South Carolina, a state closely watched by not one, not two but all three campaigns tonight. Ross Barnett carries his southern strength through dixie and carries the palmedo state tonight.

Ross Barnett
South Carolina 8 electoral votes

As if Illinois and Ohio going back to the undecided column wasn't good enough, this will be even better. Wisconsin goes for vice president Boggs.

Caleb Boggs
Wisconsin 12 electoral votes

Lets look at this very now much changed electoral map.
Patterson: 161        Boggs: 203        Barnett: 64        270 needed to win

Lets turn now to our panel.

Well that changes the entire picture of the election. Makes it more and more likely to go to the house of representatives, and if he can do it, the vice president could get to the presidency if he can make a clean sweep pretty much of those states left undecided.

Pennsylvania does go for the democrat now. Okey Patterson wins in the keystone state.

That will keep democrats in the race now and will calm some nerves that came from retracting two states from their column, but this is still major news for election night.


Okey Patterson
Pennsylvania 29 electoral votes
Patterson: 190        Boggs: 203        Barnett: 64        270 needed to win

We have a few moments before we go to a break. What happens if this election goes to the house?

I think Patterson would win. The congress is really very democratic and I don't see a way for a Boggs victory there.

Back in a moment with more commentary. You'll want to stay with us, we'll come back.



Major Election Headline: Illinois, Ohio Out of Patterson Column back into Undecided; Pennsylvania, Wisconsin Go to Respective Sides; Election 1964 Too Close to Call

We can make a declaration now in Alaska. This will come as a surprise, especially seeing how early this projection comes. Caleb Boggs wins in Alaska, carrying on his hopes that have been renewed by the retractions earlier in Illinois and Ohio. This just serves as an election 1964 update.

Caleb Boggs
Alaska 3 electoral votes
Patterson: 190        Boggs: 206        Barnett: 64        270 needed to win

Be back with more coverage in a moment.

Welcome back another call to make here. We have gone back taken a second look at returns from this state of two. While Ohio is still undecided, we can go on and declare Illinois for the republican. A big victory for the vice president, Caleb Boggs wins tonight in Illinois.

Caleb Boggs
Illinois 26 electoral votes
Patterson: 190         Boggs: 232        Barnett: 64        270 needed to win

Any quick comment from the election panel?

This keeps the republican's hopes alive that were once looking doubtful at best.

Is it time to say this will go to the house of representatives?

No I wouldn't say yet. Former President Patterson needs to get his feet on the ground again. Carrying Ohio would help that but its tougher now.


Caleb Boggs
Ohio 26 electoral votes

A second here. We have just given the buckeye state to Caleb Boggs. A cheer in Delaware, bracing themselves in West Virgnia.

Now it looks more and more likely that it will go to the house. Boggs probably needs both Washington state and New Jersey. Patterson leads in Washington state.

Back in a moment.




Patterson: 190        Boggs: 258        Barnett: 64        270 needed to win

Any quick word on this result as we say goodbye at least to tonights election coverage?

A roller coaster tonight for both sides, another fascinating election by mostly all accounts. Patterson favored early on, Boggs then gets lucky basically but it could not be all over for the republican. Drama to say the least.

Now the house of representatives, any way the vice president pulls that out?

Theres a way of course but the democrats control the house. We'll see what goes on there, being the second most powerful man in the country could pull some weight but enough against a former chief executive? Thats left to be seen.

Speaking of that former chief executive, a very gracious move for him to call the vice president.

Yes, despite the election tilted back to him with Boggs not getting to 270 electoral votes and the election going to a democratic house of representatives, we can confirm by both camps now Okey Patterson calls Caleb Boggs on the phone. They discussed from what we know the election results in general but no concession from either camp.

I wouldn't think that there would be. This has been election night 1964 coverage. Thank you again panel, we've talked with you a little more this evening. What another barn burner of a race it has been that continues now. Thanks to our readers, look forward to seeing you again. But until then, this has been election night 1964 coverage.





Major National Headline: Despite being favored, Patterson calls Boggs as election goes to house of representatives. House and senate vote still yet to come.

The house vote is complete, here is the official declaration. Okey Patterson, former President and before that West Virgnia governor returns to Washington. Patterson wins, its over.

Okey Patterson
President of the United States of America

House Vote:
Patterson: 27        Boggs: 18        Barnett: 5        26 needed to win

We are now waiting a speech by Caleb Boggs that will by all knowledge be a concession speech. Ross Barnett conceeded earlier, Okey Patterson Wins Tonight. Patterson returns to the White House, I bet when he left in 1957 he didn't expect this but expect the unexpected, Okey Patterson returns to the White House.

Back in a moment.

1966 Mid Term Election Results

Senate:
Democrat: 59        Republican: 41        51 needed for absolute majority

House:
Democrat: 273        Republican: 153        213 needed for absolute majority

election 1966 review: the senate races looked bad for republicans, new hampshire imparticular was one race that republicans wanted to win but it turned out not to be. it seemed almost certain that democrats would gain a super majority in the senate until it came to the south. a pick up in tenessee for republicans and not one but both south carolina seats going for the republican. a disappointment for republicans, three or four races were won by democrats with a margin of only less than a percentage point. the house of representatives showed steady republican gains.

as the year 1968 approached, another presidential election came onto the horizion. sitting president okey patterson was retiring due to term limits, he could not run for another term. the race to replace him would have the attention of the nation and the world.

caleb boggs, the looser in the last presidential election decided to run again. the campaign with the former vice president, michigan governor george romney and harold stassen of minnesota seemed to be be going the way of the vice president until pennsylvania senator Bill Scranton entered the race. texas senator john tower decided to jump into the race late in the campaign, as did winthrop rockefeller.

this wide field of candidates hurt the chances of the former vice president. george romney would eventually prevail and win the republican nomination for president of the united states. in a widely praised choice, romney would shortly name republican primary runner up bill scranton as his running mate in the upcoming election. as for the democrats, vice president pat brown would run for the nomination and win the nod, becoming the democratic nominee for president of the united states in 1968. the vice president choose north carolina senator everett jordan as his running mate.

expected to be a strong year for republicans, brown would keep the polls close throughout the campaign. going into the final weeks of the campaign, romney would open up a lead making hopes high and in reach for republicans.

Election Background: During his final term in office, President Patterson had returned to office to complete some unfinished business. Patterson would work to among other things, push the civil rights bill through congress, thus ending segregation for large part in the country. This brought great debate in the congress between southern democrats and those closer to the President of the United States.

In the 1968 election, Okey Patterson would campaign for his vice president, the most drama that year came in the race for the republican nomination for President. Once Brown announced he would seek the nomination, the race for the democratic nomination was for the most part cleared for the vice president. Two days before election day, the civil rights bill came out of committee and to the floor of the house of representatives for a vote. That vote would take place a week later, after the election.

election open. all polls remain open.Good evening again for another election coverage, seems like we've never done this before. With the action in congress in the past couple of days and the spirited campaign on both sides, the republican candidate governor Romney maintained a lead in the polls going into today. Lets turn to our panel. Will this Romney lead hold up tonight?

Thats an interesting question, if I had to guess right now I would say yes. His lead was only four points, within the margin of error, and his leads in a handfull of states were small. This race is not over for the democrats but the republicans are feeling good.

How will the civil rights bill being in congress for a vote later this week affect the election?

Nationally, I think Brown might have a slight benefit from the issue, being the only incumbent on the ballot. Regionally, the south will according to some polls vote in a big way for the republican. Senator Jordan being on the democrat ticket is an attempt at holding that region together.

Back with the more in a moment. Six states close their polls in just moments. Stay right here with us, we'll come back. Election night 1968




Brown: 0        Romney: 0        270 needed to win

romney doing well in the south. exit polls suggest national advantage brown.
George Romney doing well in the south, the exit polls however suggest that contrary to some pre election day polling, the advantage is with the vice president. Thats the headline of the hour. George Romney is doing the best, better than any republican has done in the south since the very earliest formation of the republican party itself. The changes in the voting patterns of the south can all be traced based on exit polls to the civil rights legislation in congress. We also have indications from the interviews with voters as they left the polling place that contrary to the polling, there is a slight edge toward Brown nationally but those are only polls.

Lets look these projections over that we have at this hour.

In South Carolina, the palmedo state. Democrats thought they might be able to just hang on to the state tonight but its not to be. George Romney wins what was for a long time considered the most democratic state in the country, Romney wins South Carolina.


George Romney
South Carolina 8 electoral votes

Same story in Virgnia. This one was less contested throughout the campaign. Governor Romney takes Virgnia.

George Romney
Virgnia 12 electoral votes

Polls have closed in Georgia also. This a different story in the south. Headline, Brown hangs on and carries Georgia at this hour.

Pat Brown
Georgia 12 electoral votes

Vermont. This is something that might surprise a lot of people. In Vermont, we can say its undecided.

Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Vermont 3 electoral votes

It would be an upset if Brown carried that state. The democratic camp would tell you though that Vermont is likely to go for governor Romney.

Moving on to Indiana. The hoosier state is undecided.


Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Indiana 13 electoral votes

We can make a call in Kentucky. This will throw some democrats, Kentucky goes for Romney.

George Romney
Kentucky 9 electoral votes

That is a surprise, if those polls were wrong and it is advantage to Brown, he won't find it south of the mason dixon line.
Brown: 12        Romney: 29        270 needed to win

You said that about Brown not finding an advantage south of the mason dixon line. We did declare him to be the winner in Georgia.

Yes but thats only one state. The real stunner of that batch is that South Carolina would give ninety-five percent of the vote or higher to democrats running for President in a whole string of election cycles, go back and look. Tonight, it goes republican and by double digits from the information were getting.

Another fascinating piece from these projections, shows the electoral map changing and visibly. A republican winning in the south and around dixie but Vermont being undecided.

That whole civil rights bill being out of committee shakes up the electoral map.

Back in a moment.





South Carolina (projected result):
Pat Brown: 44%
George Romney: 55%
Other: 1%

Kentucky (projected result):
Pat Brown: 40%
George Romney: 57%
Other: 3%

Good evening again, we are back at election night 1968 coverage. We can declare a winner in the hoosier state.

George Romney
Indiana 13 electoral votes

And dido in Vermont. The republican candidate holds on to carry that state.

George Romney
Vermont 3 electoral votes

Two states now that have just closed their polls but we cannot project a winner. In West Virgnia, how far does the republican tide in the south reach? Would be an upset if it went for Romney but not deemed impossible by either side. Undecided at this hour in West Virgnia.

Pat Brown vs George Romney
West Virgnia 7 electoral votes

That civil rights legislation in congress caused a lot of problems for the top of the democratic ticket this year. The question remains, does the democrat survive?

Back to our states reporting. In Ohio, this is one closely watched by all sides. The buckeye state is undecided.


Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Ohio 26 electoral votes

Thats the story at this hour, we'll show you a map in a moment. Coming up at the top of the hour, fifteen states and the District of Columbia will close their polls. This includes Connecticut the state that almost always goes with the winner, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan. This election could begin to take shape in the next few minutes.

Not only those states but more of the south will close their polls, we will really be able to see if this is really a republican sweep of the south.

Okay, back in a moment.

election night 1968 coverage
Welcome back again. it is 8 o'clock on the east coast, fifteen states have closed their polls acorss the country. Lets look at the information that we have.

First in Alabama, how far does the republican southern tide reach, deep into dixie. Romney carries Alabama.


George Romney
Alabama 10 electoral votes

Connecticut. That great presidential belwhether, almost always goes with the winner. Its undecided tonight.

Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Connecticut 8 electoral votes

If this is a close race tonight, Connecticut could be crucial.

In Delaware. This is a mixed batch of returns, Brown wins Delaware.


Pat Brown
Delaware 3 electoral votes

The District of Columbia, making its second appearance in the presidential election cycle, goes for the democrat again tonight.

Pat Brown
District of Columbia 3 electoral votes

Something republicans are very happy about tonight in Florida. George Romney, governor Romney wins in the sunshine state.

George Romney
Florida 14 electoral votes

Thats a lot of electoral votes that republicans have never been able to count on before. We said at the beginning of the night that it was advantage Brown nationally, that could change as the votes are reported.

Even more evidence to back up that information. West Virgnia previously undecided does go for the republican tonight.


George Romney
West Virgnia 7 electoral votes

In Illinois. Here comes some suspense for the night, its undecided in this big swing state.

Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Illinois 26 electoral votes

Same story in the state of Maine, undecided.

Pat Brown vs George Romney
Maine 4 electoral votes

Heres another win for the democrats. Maryland with its ten electoral votes goes for vice president Brown.

Pat Brown
Maryland 10 electoral votes

Diddo in the bay state, Brown wins Massachussetts.

Pat Brown
Massachusetts 14 electoral votes

Mississippi. The southern comfort for Romney continues as he takes Mississippi.

George Romney
Mississippi 7 electoral votes

Tennessee, the volunteer state. Democrats thought they could hang on here but its not to be, governor Romney wins in Tennessee.

George Romney
Tennessee 11 electoral votes

Same story in Oklahoma, Romney wins there.

George Romney
Oklahoma 8 electoral votes

New Jersey is undecided at this hour.

Pat Brown vs. George Romney
New Jersey 17 electoral votes

Pennsylvania goes for Brown. The vice president holds off the tide at least here and carries Pennsylvania.

Pat Brown
Pennsylvania 29 electoral votes

Missouri. This will come as a surprise to some. Brown wins the show me state.

Pat Brown
Missouri 12 electoral votes

Now lets look at the electoral map that we showed you briefly before going through all of those.

Brown: 83        Romney: 131        270 needed to win

Two quick thoughts. First Illinois and Ohio have a combined total of fifty two electoral votes, that can shake the electoral board despite what the count looks like now. Second what Romney does to win, if he can hold off Brown in enough of the midwest and east coast, still sweep the south then its over for Brown.

Back in a moment, election night 1968 coverage continues.

Good evening again, no new projections for you at this hour. We do have two more states that closed their polls at 8:30 PM on the east coast. First in North Carolina.

The state that some democrats say might save their candidacy if it would stay with them. Undecided in North Carolina at this hour.


Pat Brown vs. George Romney
North Carolina 13 electoral votes

Same story in Arkansas. What an upset it would be if North Carolina went for Brown but Arkansas the other way. Arkansas considered to be the more democratic of the two but crazier things have happened. Its undecided at this hour in Arkansas.

Pat Brown vs. George Romney
Arkansas 6 electoral votes

Election coverage continues in a moment.




Indiana (projected result)
Brown: 47%

9 o'clock on the east coast. Enough electoral votes are out, voted on to elect a President and we might have one sooner than we think.

In Arizona. This state has gone from being very democratic now to just the opposite supporting republicans. George Romney wins in Arizona.


George Romney
Arizona 5 electoral votes'

Same story in Colorado. Governor Romney takes the state's six electoral votes.

George Romney
Colorado 6 electoral votes

A big call for the democrat. Pat Brown upsets governor Romney and takes New Jersey. Jersey stays in the democratic column.

Minnesota 10 electoral votes

Nebraska. We can call George Romney the winner in Nebraska.

George Romney
Nebraska 5 electoral votes

Diddo in New Mexico. Governor Romney takes this southwestern state.

A major projection coming in now. Romney wins Illinois. This is one the democrats threw everything they had into but it was not to be, George Romney takes a big win in Illinois.

George Romney
Illinois 26 electoral votes

New York is undecided at this hour, Brown leads there.

Pat Brown vs George Romney
New York 43 electoral votes

The heart break goes on in the south. The solid demcoratic south was not to stay forever that way, Romney wins North Carolina.

This might be over.


George Romney
North Carolina 13 electoral votes

Brown wins in Rhode Island, some small solace for the democrats at this hour.

Pat Brown
Rhode Island 4 electoral votes

Welcome back to election night 1968 coverage. George Romney has not gone over the 270 electoral votes needed to be elected President but it looks as if he is coming closer and closer. Lets turn to our panel. If Romeny does win tonight, is it an interesting fact to note that despite Scranton, governor of Pennsylvania being on the ticket as vice president, Brown wins Pennsylvania?

I think that really threw some people especially after the recent returns that look good for the republican. A big Philidelphia vote is helping Brown. If the Romney/Scranton ticket wins tonight, I would doubt they will be moaning over Pennsylvania.

We are just moments away from 10 o'clock on the east coast, while we do not expect to declare a President winner at the top of this hour, there are some western states and Iowa closing there polls. It is now 10 o'clock on the east coast.


romney wins reliably republican states. iowa undecided, the republicans moving closer to claiming the white house.
It is 10 o'clock on the east coast and we have some projections.

In Utah, one of the most republican states in the country. George Romney wins Utah.


George Romney
Utah 4 electoral votes

A quick word from the Brown camp at this hour. They acknowledge the Romney lead but the democrat candidate or at least his camp does not believe that the race is over.

Good to hear a word from that camp. Returning to these projections, Idaho goes for Romney, no contest there.


George Romney
Idaho 4 electoral votes

Romney wins in Nevada, democrats once had some hope there. It seems that high republican turnout in central and northern Nevada outweighed a democrat run in Clark county. Romney wins Nevada.

George Romney
Nevada 3 electoral votes

Governor Romney wins in Montana tonight. Montana for the republican.

George Romney
Montana 4 electoral votes

Iowa as the headline said is undecided, bad news again for the Brown camp, Romney leads in Iowa.

Pat Brown vs George Romney
Iowa 9 electoral votes

We can call, yes Connecticut for governor Romney at this hour. Thus moving him even closer to being the President elect.

George Romney
Connecticut 8 electoral votes
Brown: 104        Romney: 253        270 needed to win

Lets turn to our panel again now.

If there is any hope from that Brown statement, it is hard to see. The democrat just about has to sweep the remaining states to  come up with an election victory.

Any chance at all of a Brown come back? If he wins Pennsylvania, does that say anything about these other industrial states outstanding.

If he can't win Minnesota then no.

Back in a moment.




Brown: 104        Romney: 253        270 needed to win

Good evening and welcome back. Well for the last eight years as governor, George Romney has lived in government housing and we can now project that he will continue to live in government housing. Another republican will occupy the White House, only the fourth of this century to do so. George Romney wins Michigan and Michigan, his home state therefore puts him over the number of electoral votes he needs.

George Romney
Michigan 21 electoral votes
Brown: 104        Romney: 274        270 needed to win

And we are finally seeing, that final poll before the election could very well turn out to be right. Some of those industrial states are leaning the now President elect's way.

We can declare Ohio for Romney, Iowa for Romney and Arkansas for Brown at this hour.

Arkansas might be the last state that the vice president wins tonight.


George Romney
Ohio 26 electoral votes

George Romney
Iowa 9 electoral votes

Pat Brown
Arkansas 6 electoral votes

George Romney
President of the United States of America
Brown: 110        Romney: 309        270 needed to win

We will come back with more in a moment, election night 1968 continues.



Brown: 110        Romney: 309        270 needed to win
