George McGovern “No Longer Responsive”: Family | Common Dreams

What a different America we might live in if he had been elected President in ’68.

McGovern, 90, served in the U.S. Senate for South Dakota from 1963 to 1981. He made an unsuccessful bid to unseat incumbent President Richard Nixon in 1972 on a platform opposing the Vietnam war.

McGovern is best known for being a leading opponent of the Vietnam War, but he also worked tirelessly advocating for family farmers and in the battle against world hunger.
