Wendell Lewis Willkie (1892 – 1944) was the dark horse Republican Party nominee for the 1940 presidential election, where he crusaded against the policies of the New Deal. He ran against Franklin D. Roosevelt who won a third term with 55% of the popular vote and 85% of the electoral vote. Roosevelt found Willkie to be a compatible liberal and brought him aboard as a special ambassador-at-large.
This original WIN WITH WILLKIE lapel button is still on its original card. The lapel pin is made of brass with Willkie's portrait in relief. The button measures 1/2 inch...the card is 1 1/2 inches. It's in excellent condition...just the way a political collector likes to find it.
