Forty Years Later, Another Young Candidate

Forty Years Later, Another Young Candidate


Forty-six year-old Barack Obama campaigned in Watertown on Friday, almost 40 years to the day after another young Democratic presidential contender urged area residents to vote for him. 

Senator Robert F. Kennedy spoke to a full Watertown High School auditorium. 

Those who attended the speech say he vowed to protect the family farmer, support rural development and improve the quality of life rural America. 

Ninety-two year-old J. Maurice Redmond says it was a thrill to hear Kennedy speak. 

Sue Williams, who was 14 at the time, says Kennedy was shorter than she anticipated. And she says he took his spaniel with him on every campaign stop. 

Kennedy won South Dakota's primary in June, the same day he was shot and killed after celebrating a win in the California primary.
