Nixon’s the One

3 April 1968, was the day that Richard Nixon won the Wisconsin Presidential Primary. Ten percent of the vote would go to California Governor, Ronald Reagan. Each ticket in which Nixon was a part would be successful in carrying the electoral votes of the State of Wisconsin – Eisenhower/Nixon in ‘52 and ’56, Nixon/Lodge in 1960, Nixon/Agnew in ’68 and ’72.
