SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Former South Dakota U.S. senator and Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern has celebrated his 90th birthday.
McGovern turned 90 last month. He greeted friends and supporters at an open house in Sioux Falls on Wednesday night.
Daughter Ann McGovern tells KELO-TV that her father is still active and doing well. He splits his time between South Dakota and Florida.
McGovern lost in a historic landslide in his 1972 challenge to President Richard Nixon, who eventually resigned amid the Watergate scandal.
