Patrick Lucey made a campaign swing through Oregon. Lucey was a Democrat. Anderson a Republican. Together they felt they could make some changes worthy of votes in the November 1980 elections.
Patrick Lucey passed away this past week and I just realized I had one Oregon button from the Anderson-Lucey campaign.

|Possible 1968 GOP ticket buttons|
In the weeks and sometimes months before a political convention you can find some of the best 'fantasy ticket' items produced. A fantasy ticket or hypothetical ticket item is a political item bearing a ticket of a possible or favored party ticket prior to the selection of nominees from that party. Some fantasy tickets are highly plausible others are mostly just dream tickets. In 2004 a dream ticket of many was a Kerry-McCain ticket. McCain and Kerry were fellow Vietnam veterans and U.S. Senators that had been friends for many years. McCain teased the media for a few days saying he would seriously think about it if an offer was made from the Democratic Party. Of course, no offer ever did come from the party.
We've started doing some posts on current members of the Oregon congressional delegation and our first one was on Congressman Earl Blumenauer. Since that post a few more items have shown up. Here is a t-shirt and a set of colorful bicycles that the Blumenauer campaign gives out.
