Minnesota Republican who had the unenviable work of orchestrating Richard Nixon’s 1972 re-election advertising campaign following Watergate. He changed Nixon’s former lawyer general, who resigned per month after Watergate, as the top from the re-election committee. His sterling record, among swirling accusations of Nixon loyalists, helped him to propel Richard Nixon to a landslide success over opposition George McGovern. He was created in Minneapolis, Minnesota, his dad an attorney and mom a instructor. In 1970 he went against, and dropped to, Hubert Humphrey within an election for the vacated Senate chair.
