President Kennedy Campaigns for Hughes in N.J.

Nov. 2, 1961 - President Kennedy told an enthusiastic rally in Trenton today that he was proud to come to New Jersey to urge the election of Richard J. Hughes as Governor. In his first campaign speech since he entered the White House, the President maintained that the Democratic nominee was “committed to the same progress for the United States” that he was. “I am delighted to join him in asking support for the things in which he believes and I believe,” the President said. “That is building here at home so that we can maintain our position abroad, until that day comes when the powerful forces of freedom in every man, as well as every nation, bring about liberty here and around the world.”
