(Fox News) – George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic presidential nominee,
has died after a short stay in a South Dakota hospice, after what his family
termed a “combination of medical conditions.”

A 22-year veteran of the House and Senate from South Dakota, McGovern
was one of the most storied American politicians of the 20th century. He was
best known for his outspoken opposition to the Vietnam War and advocacy
for agricultural and world hunger issues.

McGovern lost the 1972 presidential election to the incumbent President
Richard Nixon in one of the biggest landslides in American history, winning
only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Nixon later resigned from
the presidency in 1974 due to the Watergate scandal.
