The KSUT Sunday Special Compares Two Contentious Election Years: 1968 and 2016


American Radioworks documentary looks at the similarities between the two years. Hear it Sunday afternoon at 5 on the KSUT Sunday Special.

The 1968 presidential campaign was a close, bitterly-fought affair in a raucous, bloody year.

It was also historic. The Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, paving way for the rise of the Republican conservatism that has reshaped American public policy for the last 40 years.

Many see similarities between the presidential election campaign of 2016 and one almost half a century earlier.

Join us for Campaign '68, an American Radioworks documentary that traces the history of that contentious race for the White House, and compares it to this year.
