Former South Dakota Sen. George S. McGovern, a lion of liberal causes in U.S. politics for more than a half-century whose loss in the 1972 presidential race to Richard Nixon would have profound consequences for the course of American politics, died Sunday morning at a hospice in Sioux Falls, S.D., at the age of 90.
McGovern announced his intention to withdraw from the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
Former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy called him "the most decent man in the Senate" and said Mr. McGovern was admired in Washington both for his ability and his character.
