Photographs of Jonathan Binkley and John Kerry with USA seal and a yellow star between them with blue and red text.
Jonathan Binkley is the chair of the Republican Political Items Collection for the American Political Items Collectors, which was founded in 1945 is a non-profit organization dedicated to studying, preserving, and collecting political and presidential items. In the 2004 presidential election, Republican candidate George W. Bush ran against Democratic candidate John Kerry. In 2003, however, the official candidates had not yet been chosen. During the primary elections, there had been 9 Democratic candidates running for presidency. The main contenders for the Democratic party were John Kerry and John Edwards. Binkley had presumably chosen Kerry as the Democratic candidate before the primaries had come to a close.
