My time with the College Republicans included the run-up to the 1984 election.
My friend had some buttons made for the primaries "Glenn is Spaced out" and some for when we went to the Maryland Republican convention.
We had "Reagan '84, Falwell '88" buttons among our supply, and the local TV affiliate in Salisbury interviewed me while we sold our wares. Unfortunately, I never saw that clip on TV.
The Clinton/Gore 1992 buttons with the confederate flag have the feel of our homemade buttons. Unlikely part of the official campaign, but someone who liked the candidates made them to show their support.
The same with Hillary buttons found from 2008.
What can designers think up this election cycle?
