'Yes, I'll Try a Pair' cartoon, 1964
Contributed by Margaret Chase Smith Library
Vic Runtz worked for the Bangor Daily News, which published his political cartoon on January 28, 1964, showing Senator Margaret Chase Smith at a sporting goods store picking out a pair of running shoes. Margaret Chase Smith was running for US President in 1964.
The shoes have a sign over them saying "GOP Presidential Primary." A little man representing Maine is waving a Dirigo banner watching the Senator and a little press cat is writing "'Formidable' is the word for Margaret!"
