Lyndon B. Johnson, also known as LBJ, was John F. Kennedy's Vice President candidate in the 1960 United States Presidential election. Upon assuming the position, Johnson succeeded the position as President three years later after President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Johnson ran for reelection in 1964 as the Democratic nominee against Republican candidate Barry Goldwater of Arizona. Johnson won the election with a 61% majority. Although he was able to run again in 1968, he did not pursue a reelection campaign, citing ailing health as his reason.
