Arch Moore for Congress

Item

Title

Arch Moore for Congress

Description

Arch A. Moore, Jr. ran for a Congressional seat seven times, winning six of those and serving as a U.S. Representative from 1957-1969. He also ran for a U.S. Senate seat in 1978, but was unsuccessful. Because this sign does not have a date, it could potentially be from any of those elections, or his failed congressional campaign of 1954. The slogan is not very exciting, despite the eye catching colors of the banner. There is no direct comparison to this banner with any other campaign banner of that stretch of time.
