Elect Dick Morgan Captain of Conservatives

 

 

Title:
Elect Dick Morgan Captain of Conservatives
Abstract:
This inventive item dates from Texas in the early 1960s, but unfortunately no other information regarding its provenance has yet been determined. Nevertheless, both the slogan and its matching hat stand as a testament to the ingenuity of conservative activists attempting to gain attention for their causes. By attracting viewers with a lighthearted gag, campaign items like this could pull in potential listeners for a more serious conservative message.
