Made in 1914, this button sought to inspire support for Hugh Miller's campaign for Indiana Senator. Miller ran as a Republican in the election, campaigning on issues like anti-sectionalism, tariff reform, and government inefficiency. Miller lost the election by nearly 50,000 votes to the democratic candidate Benjamin Shively. Prior to the election, Miller worked as the vice president for Irwin's Bank in Columbus, Indiana.
