JFK wins the West Virginia primary. Kennedy spends the day in Georgetown and while waiting for results goes to the movies, seeing a risque film called Private Property. They were joined by Ben and Toni Bradlee.
When the couples returned home, there was a call waiting from Bobby reporting that JFK was going to win the primary with about 60% of the vote. The couples had an impromptu celebration with champagne, hugs, and cheering and then went to the airport for a flight on the Caroline to Charleston, West Virginia and a victory celebration.
