Description
These stickers promoted Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts, the Democratic presidential nominee in 1988. He lost the election to Vice President George H.W. Bush, the Republican candidate. Disposable campaign stickers were first produced in 1968. They were cheaper and easier to manufacture and were more fabric friendly than the traditional pin-back button.
