I too am working on a Reagan in '68 timeline that I wrote four years ago (it was so awful and unrealistic that I gutted it completely. The United States invaded Turkey in 1977 at one point Tongue and Alan Keyes was elected in a landslide with Newt Gingrich in 1996) but John Tower was the runningmate for Reagan and I kept him on the ticket.

Besides her age (71), would Margaret Chase Smith be a bad pick? She campaigned for Goldwater in '64 despite original opposition, and was a long serving Senator.

What about Senator J. Caleb Boggs of Delaware? In 1968, he was 59 years old, and had been a Senator since 1960, and was Governor of Delaware from 1952-1960, and was a Congressman from 1946 until 1952. He seems to be a moderate.
