This button refers to Senator Robert Taft, son of President William Howard Taft, who was a three term Republican US Senator from Cincinnati, Ohio. Robert Taft, a republican, was known for being fiscally conservative, but more socially liberal. He opposed prohibition, the Ku Klux Klan, and World War II which cost him some political support. He sought the presidential office three times, but lost his final GOP primary campaign to President Eisenhower in 1952. Taft became majority leader in the Senate in 1953, but died soon after from cancer.
