Nixon and his wife are surrounded by a crowd at the Los Angeles airport during the 1952 campaign.

På bilden ser vi Nixon, tillsammans med sin fru Pat, vid ett kampanjevenemang i Los Angeles 1952. Liz Ronk, fotoredaktör för LIFE.com, skriver om Nixon:

Nixon, who was born on Jan. 9, 1913, ran his first political campaign in 1946 with a successful bid for U.S. Congress. He followed that with another successful bid, for Senate in 1950, and two successful campaigns for vice president, with Dwight D. Eisenhower, in 1952 and 1956. Then came the losses: first for president, losing to John F. Kennedy in 1960—thanks in part to his lackluster appearance at the first-ever televised presidential debate—and then for governor of California, two years later.

When Nixon returned from several years of laying low to run for president in 1968, President Johnson called him a ”chronic campaigner.”
