Muskie, a senator from Maine, as his vice president. Former vice president Richard M. Nixon of California was running for president on the Republican Party ticket with Spiro T. Agnew, governor of Maryland, as his vice president. The American Party’s candidates were George C. Wallace, former governor of Alabama, for president, and Curtis LeMay, retired U.S. Army general, for vice president.
