Quick Overview

In 1962, California Governor Pat Brown was running for re-election vs Richard M. Nixon. President John F. Kennedy agreed to attend a rally held in Los Angeles to help Brown's re-election campaign, also no doubt meant as an early second term campaign stop for the young President.

Kennedy's appearance was cancelled as the Cuban Missile Crisis required Kennedy's full attention. As tensions continued to rise, the nation - and the world - waited as Kennedy, Khrushchev and Castro negotiated and threatened each other. Despite the cancellation, Brown was re-elected for another term as the California Governor. This original and seldom seen flyer invited people to meet and hear "Your President" John F Kennedy and "Your Governor", Edmund G. (Pat) Brown for a "Giant Street Rally" in Los Angeles on Friday, October 26, 1962.

We recently acquired a number of these scarce flyers. In 1962 the Democratic incumbent, Pat Brown, ran for re-election against former Vice President Richard Nixon. In his concession speech, Nixon accused the media of favoring his opponent Brown, stating that it was his "last press conference" and "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around any more.". Six years later, Nixon was elected President of the United States.
