Talk:Democratic Party presidential primaries, 1968

I'm confused. The article states that "However, McCarthy refused to withdraw from the Presidential race and made it clear that he would contest Kennedy in the upcoming New York primary" ... and then says that only thirteen states (New York not among them) held primaries. Could someone please clarify? -- Avocado (talk) 16:16, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

The New York primary didn't have a beauty contest until 1980, therefore delegates were on the ballot for themselves.Ericl (talk) 13:56, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, Ericl. Is there a way to clarify that in the text? -- Avocado (talk) 15:21, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
The one missing from the states listing was West Virginia - it is included in the chart as having "unpledged" delegates, so I corrected that particular statement so the listing is consistent with the chart. As for New York, Eric is correct, 1980 was the first year they had a primary similar to the other states in the chart. Rosalina523 (talk) 16:55, 25 May 2012 (UTC)


McCarthy was excluded from the title thing at the top, so I put him back.

Roger Branigin-portrait[edit]

I inserted the portrait of Roger Branigin in the candidates-gallery. I believe that fair use applies here, but I am not sure. If anyone can find out if my edit is legitimate, please do so. Regards,Jeff5102 (talk) 08:22, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
