Description
Bright orange image of a dove holding an olive branch, the dove being a widely recognized symbol for peace and a symbol adopted by Eugene McCarthy's strong anti-war campaign in the presidential election of 1968. McCarthy entered the primaries not well known publicly, vying for the Democratic nomination. He stunned the nation, nearly beating incumbent president Lyndon B. Johnson in the New Hampshire primaries, leading to Johnson dropping out of the race entirely just a few weeks later. McCarthy continued campaigning on a strong anti-Vietnam War platform, along with Robert Kennedy, calling for changes to be made in America's foreign policy. After the assassination of Kennedy, McCarthy ultimately lost the nomination to Johnson's preferred candidate and loyalist to the Johnson administrations Vietnam War policies, Vice President Hubert Humphrey. Additional text includes: Authorized and paid for by McCarthy for President, Ted Finman, Treasurer, 116 E. Mifflin Street, Madison, Wisconsin.
