The Hubert Humphrey presidential campaign of 1968 began when Vice President of the United States Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota decided to seek the Democratic Party nomination for President of the United States following the announcement by President Lyndon B.
Johnson that he would not seek the party's nomination.
He served two, two-year terms, and gained a reputation as an anti-Communist and ardent supporter of the Civil Rights Movement.
He gave a rousing speech at the 1948 Democratic National Convention arguing for the adoption of a pro-Civil Rights plank, exclaiming "The time has arrived in America for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and to walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights." That same year, he was elected to the United States Senate, where he worked closely with Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson.
Humphrey experienced a surge in the polls in the days prior to the election, largely due to incremental progress in the peace process in Vietnam and a break with the Johnson war policy, but was defeated by Nixon on Election Day.
Hubert Humphrey was first elected to public office in 1945 as Mayor of Minneapolis.
