JFK Campaigning in Greensboro in 1960

North Carolina was a real player in the 1960 Presidential campaign. Governor Terry Sanford was the first southern governor to endorse JFK. As a result, he was chosen to give the "seconding speech" at the Democratic convention. Immediate past Governor Luther Hodges was named Secretary of Commerce in the Kennedy Administration. Pictured above at a campaign stop at the Greensboro-High Point Airport are Sanford, JFK , Hodges, and U.S. Senator Sam Ervin.
