US Senate confirms Gerald R. Ford as vice president
The US Senate votes 92-3 to confirm Gerald Ford as Richard Nixon’s vice president. He succeeds Spiro Agnew, who had resigned after pleading no contest to tax evasion. Ford will serve as vice president for less than a year before succeeding Nixon as president, after he resigns in the fallout from the Watergate scandal.
