Additional Information

The donkey was first used as a symbol for the Democratic party during Andrew Jackson's 1828 presidential campaign. He was referred to as a "jackass" by his opponents, and chose to embrace the image. Cartoonist Thomas Nash later used the donkey to portray the democratic party in newspapers and has been used ever since.
