Gary spoke to the student body on behalf of Lyndon Johnson over Barry Goldwater in 1964, during a mock election they were having at his school. He was not even registered to vote yet. The major issue for him was civil rights. Goldwater had voted against the Civil Rights of 1964. Lyndon Johnson signed the legislation. Barry Goldwater was the most conservative candidate ever imagined in 1964. Today he would be considered too liberal for the Republican Party.
