Additional Information: 

This is a campaign pin for Arthur McGonigle, a Pennsylvania businessman who ran for state governor in 1958, though he was defeated by David Lawrence. McGonigle was famous for turning a small pretzel factory into what was considered at the time to be the largest pretzel factory in the United States, resulting in many “twist” puns during his political campaign.
