  • Description

    Senator Thomas Eagleton on Monday (July 31) withdrew his candidacy as vice-President under Senator George McGovern on the Democratic Party ticket for the November Presidential election. The move followed controversy over the disclosure that Senator Eagleton had undergone psychiatric therapy in the 1960's. The decision was announced at a news conference after a long private talk between the two men. Senator McGovern, who made the announcement, said he and Senator Eagleton had agreed it would be the best thing for the party and for the nation. He said the disclosures continued to divert attention from the great national issues that needed to be discussed.
