Adlai Stevenson II ran for President in 1952 and 1956 and lost to President Eisenhower both times. This button was made for the 1960 presidential primary and was given out at voting drives and political conventions. Stevenson refused to campaign for the nomination a third time, but announced that he would accept if the Democratic Party offered it to him. He had many supporters who campaigned for him, including Eleanor Roosevelt, but he lost to John F. Kennedy in the primary.
