July 27, 1960: Vice President Richard Nixon wins some – but not all – of what he wants on a civil rights plank for his 1960 presidential campaign. Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater says: "If a liberal civil rights plank is adopted, the South will leave the party this year. I don't know what Nixon is thinking of. I don't think he can get elected if he keeps on doing what he is doing."

On the jump, the entire text of the Republicans’ revised civil rights statement, photos, and analysis by Times Political Editor Kyle Palmer and James Reston of the New York Times.
