Nov. 8-9, 1960: The Associated Press reports: “Sen. John F. Kennedy swept so close to the presidency early today that practically everybody except the GOP high command proclaimed him the victor.

“And while Nixon clutched at hopes that belated tallies in such vital states as Michigan, Illinois and his own California could swing things his way until 12:15 a.m., he then issued a statement saying:

"If the present trend continues, Sen. Kennedy will be the next president of the United States."

“His wife, Pat, wept on TV before viewers coast to coast.”
