This bumper sticker was produced for the 1960 Kennedy-Johnson presidential campaign. After John F. Kennedy defeated Texas Senator Lyndon B. Johnson in the 1960 Democratic primary, Kennedy named Johnson as his running mate. Johnson's addition brought on board an experienced old-school politician, and also provided a better chance of victory in the key swing states.
