Campaign advertisement for George Macatee

Title
Campaign advertisement for George Macatee
Abstract
This clever piece of campaign memorabilia announced George Macatee's campaign for the Texas State Legislature in 1962. Note that every detail of this mock federal reserve note has been put to use to advertise Macatee's conservative bona fides, including the signatures ("Kleen House N. Austin" and "A Texan") and the replacement of "dollar" with "scholar" ("of Texas Freedom"). The common conservative themes of fiscal restraint ("this certificate shows tender, legal concern for the public debt") and state sovereignty ("help keep Washington, D.C., out of Texas") also make an appearance.
