Robert F. Kennedy (November 20, 1925 – June 6, 1968) was not only the 64th U.S. Attorney General in JFK's administration but his brother's closest confidant and counsel. After JFK's assassination, Robert Kennedy continued on as Lyndon Johnson's Attorney General until September 1964 when he left to run for and win the U.S. Senate seat from New York. As AG he was famously aggressive in his pursuit of Civil Rights, prosecution of organized crime, including the Mafia, and his involvement of international relations, particularly Cuba. He was tragically assassinated on the night of his successful candidacy in the California and South Dakota Democratic Primary.
