This button references the famous quote, "And now it's on to Chicago and lets win there" from Robert Kennedy's victory speech after winning the California primary and moments before his assassination at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. The button was made for a group of Gene McCarthy campaign staffers who were working to get Bob Kennedy’s supporters to support McCarthy after Kennedy’s assassination.
