Ted Kennedy: 1980 Democratic Primary Campagin
Edward Moore "Ted" Kennedy (1932-2009) was an American politician and lawyer who served as a United States Senator from Massachusetts. Kennedy finally decided to seek the Democratic nomination in the 1980 Presidential Election by launching an unusual, insurgent campaign against the incumbent Carter, a member of his own party. On the penultimate day, Kennedy conceded the nomination and called for a more liberal party platform in what many saw as the best speech of his career.
