PORTLAND - May 19th, 1958

From the KGW archives this rare film shows John F. Kennedy visiting Oregon two years prior to his run for the Presidency. The first 20 seconds of the film show him travelling with a group of State democratic leaders and addressing a small crowd of supporters. Then you will hear the KGW interview with reporter Ivan Smith who asks JFK if he plans to run.
