Object Name Button, Campaign
Description Political button, John P. Reese for Congress, sepia image. John P. Reese ran for U.S. House of Representatives. He ran in the sixth district of Iowa in 1902 against John F. Lacey as the Democratic representative. However, he lost 18,828 votes to 17,015 votes. Could not find any information about whether or not he ran for office multiple times so the button could be from 1902, but there is no definitive proof.
