|1960 presidential election|
Nixon and Lodge
|Date(s)||July 25–28, 1960|
|Presidential nominee||Richard M. Nixon of California|
|Vice Presidential nominee||Henry C. Lodge Jr. of Massachusetts|
The 1960 National Convention of the Republican Party of the United States was held in Chicago, Illinois, from July 25 to July 28, 1960, at the International Amphitheatre. It was the 14th and most recent time overall that Chicago hosted the Republican National Convention, more times than any other city.
By the time the Republican convention opened, Nixon had no opponents for the nomination. The highlight of the convention was the speech by U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona removing himself from the race where he called on the Conservatives to take back the party.
Before choosing Lodge, Nixon considered the following candidates for the vice presidential nomination, among others:
San Francisco, California
