    McCarthy challenged Lyndon Johnson in the 1968 campaign, and prompted Johnson to reconsider.
    Robert Kennedy then stepped forward as the Democratic nominee, but was then assassinated June 5, 1968. Hubert Humphrey then challenged Richard Nixon in the presidential election, and the rest is history.
