    Description

    Lyndon Johnson for U.S. Senator 1941 Cardboard Sign. Johnson first ran for national office in 1937, winning a Congressional seat in a special election. He was re-elected in 1938 and again in 1940. In 1941, when a U.S. Senate seat opened up, Johnson entered the race. He lost by a close margin. In December of that year, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States went to war. Johnson became the first member of Congress to volunteer for active military duty. He saw combat in the Pacific and won the Silver Star before President Roosevelt recalled to Washington all members of Congress serving in the military. This cardboard campaign poster is from his ill-fated 1941 campaign. It is 11" x 14" in size and stark in its appearance. It reads, "Lyndon Johnson, U.S. Senator, Roosevelt - Unity - Defense," printed in blue and red on white with a drawn portrait of Johnson in the center. Union printed in Houston, Texas and in excellent condition save for minor toning around edges.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
