McGovern celebrated as ‘conscience’ for nation
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Three former Democratic presidential candidates paid personal respects Friday to George McGovern, whose 1972 campaign for president galvanized the party’s liberal wing and ushered in a new generation of political activism.
Walter Mondale, John Kerry and Gary Hart – who like McGovern all spent time in the Senate before unsuccessful runs for the White House – led a crowd of hundreds of mourners. Hart, McGovern’s campaign manager in 1972, was the only one of the three to speak at the funeral.
