This button refers to a statement made by Senator Henry Ashurst of Arizona about his feelings on voting for the Republican candidate, Wendell Willkie, in the 1940 presidential election. Ashurst had previously backed a proposed constitutional amendment limiting presidents to one six-year term. However, when President Roosevelt was nominated to run for a third term in office, Ashurst supported him.
