This is an anti-Reagan campaign button, most likely from the 1984 campaign against former Vice President Walter Mondale. President Ronald Reagan served as the 40th president of the United States from 1981-1989. After becoming famous by acting in 53 Hollywood films, Reagan entered politics as a conservative in the 1960s. He was first elected to Governor of California in 1966 and then later campaigned for the 1980 presidential election. President Reagan and his running-mate, Vice President George H. W. Bush, beat President Jimmy Carter in a landslide victory. Running as the incumbents in 1984, Reagan and Bush won 49 out of 50 states against Mondale. Reagan is remembered for his fiscal policies, also known as “Reaganomics,” and is often referenced as a hero-figure by today’s Republican party.
