  3. Yes, Nixon had served as a senator. The last time an incumbent senator had been elected president was 1960. The question is not a good question.

  4. Lyndon Johnson also served as a U.S. Senator for many years before he was elected vice-president, and was an incumbent senator in 1960, and president in 1964. Nixon was elected in 1968, Sen. Kennedy in 1960.
