    Harry S Truman: Two Scarce 1948 Pro-Truman Slogan Buttons. A key element in Truman's successful uphill campaign was his relentless criticism of the Republican-controlled Congress. Confident of victory, the Republicans decided to block any meaningful legislation which might be viewed as a credit to the incumbent Truman administration. With the help of Truman's fiery rhetoric on the stump the strategy backfired spectacularly. To our experience the 1¾", lighter pink variant offered here is much the scarcer of the two.
