Winning the South

In 1960, Fritz Hollings (foreground), then governor of South Carolina, was busy on the campaign trail in support of Massachusetts Sen. John Kennedy’s presidential campaign. Thanks to the efforts of Hollings and others, Kennedy carried six Southern states as well as South Carolina in that successful election. Hollings was elected to the Senate in 1966, where he still serves today. He will retire at the end of this term after more than 50 years of public service.
