Keynoter: Stevenson Hole in Shoe Update

In the Spring 2013 issue of the Keynoter, an update is given on a Winter 2012 article regarding Adlai Stevenson famous hole in shoe photograph and the items that surround the famous photo both from the Stevenson campaign and the Eisenhower campaign. Richard Rector and John Vargo both submitted additions. I found another such throwback to the Stevenson campaign.Here is a photo is from Gary Hart in 1984.

This photo was used in the magazine for Gary Hart delegates called Hart Beat, it was sold for $3.00 at the Democratic National Convention in San Fransisco. It contains a recap of the Gary Hart's nomination campaign.

Inside you'll find some bio portions on his family and himself. A run down of his stances on major issues and endorsements from prominent Democrats who work in certain issue areas: Henry Waxman, Bob Kerrey, and Chris Dodd to name a few. At the end of the magazine you will find polls of how Mondale and Hart compare against Reagan. Of course, being a pro-Hart magazine they used polling that would show Hart fairing much better against Reagan than Mondale. This was probably done with the hope of trying to sway more delegates to support Hart at the convention.

If you haven't had the chance to read the Keynoter, then you probably have not paid your APIC dues. They are all in  full color these days and filled with great articles and wonderful pictures. Go renew or sign up for your membership at
