Additional Information

In 1972, the Senate race for Delaware was a standoff between incumbent J. Caleb Boggs and New Castle County Councilman Joe Biden. With minimal campaign financing, Biden employed several family members to help run his campaign and relied heavily on donations. Buttons like these, under the purview of his brother and campaign finance manager Jim Biden, were sent to donors. Biden went on to win the 1972 Delaware Senate election.
