    I did a quick google search but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. what I need to know is during I believe the 1963 Presidential elections who was JFK's competition, who's place did he take? any additional information other than that is welcome yet not necessary.

    sorry I'm a 23 year old Canadian, I don't know this stuff! :confused:

    thanks in advance.

    There's a reason you couldn't find a 1963 election: It took place in 1960. JFK was assasinated in 1963.

    well that wasn't part of my initial search just a guess off the top of my head.

    thanks, I'll try putting that into my search.

    Yes. Nixon was the incumbent VP at the time; Eisenhower was already on his second term.

    not sure but I found Eisenhower was president before JFK so I presume that's who he beat out, that is if E didn't run for re election? It's possible all 3, Eisenhower, JFK and Nixon were all in the running?

    I swear there is so much information on this subject especially on JFK that it's almost impossible for myself to narrow it down to what I'm looking for. :confused:

    Here, this might help. http://www.presidentelect.org/

    US presidential terms run for four years, with a limit of two terms (Franklin Roosevelt managed quite a bit more than that, and the rules were changed to keep that from happening again).

    yeah I'm relatively aware of the current US political climate to a degree, including length of terms and such. nonetheless thanks for the info and I'll be sure to check out that link
